Extreme Career Makeover at Lethbridge College | Lethbridge College

Extreme Career Makeover at Lethbridge College | Lethbridge College | critical reasoning | Scoop.it

Lethbridge College’s Extreme Career Makeover is geared to people who are looking to make a big change. Whether they have been out of school for 20 months or 20 years, Lethbridge College wants to give them the opportunity to change their career and change their lives. Not only will the college cover two years of tuition and books for the winners, it will also cover the cost of residence for both those years.

In exchange, the two students will spend the two years chronicling their experiences as a Lethbridge College student in videos, blogs and social media.

“The Extreme Career Makeover campaign is certainly a first for Lethbridge College and quite possibly for post-secondary education in Canada,” says Lethbridge College President and CEO Dr. Paula Burns. “Increasing the accessibility of a college education is something that every school is working towards. Offering two people this unique opportunity is accessibility at its best.”
