The PTSD Academic Learning Centre at Winnipeg Technical College (Henlow Campus) is an academic classroom environment available to Pembina Trails Grade 11 and 12 students who are also enrolled in a technical or vocational program at Winnipeg Technical College (WTC).
What do we do?
Our mission is to give Pembina Trails students enrolled at WTC the convenience of earning their core high school credits while remaining in one location for the duration of their school day. Students in the program will attend their WTC classes for a half-day, and then attend the Academic Learning Centre for their high school coursework for the other half of the day.
What does the coursework look like, and what courses are available?
Coursework is delivered through teacher directed modules. This provides the flexibility for students to self-pace, either accelerating their coursework or, if necessary, extending the time available for the student to successfully meet course requirements.
Students can also access Blackboard on-line courses using the Learning Centre’s technology resources. Through the use of Blackboard students are able to earn credits in courses not offered directly through the Learning Centre.
How does one go about registering at the Academic Learning Centre?
Pembina Trails students who are, or will be, attending classes at Winnipeg Technical College should first talk to their guidance counselor about their interest in attending the Academic Learning Centre. From there, a time can be arranged for the student to meet with the Academic Learning Centre staff to tour the area and determine their suitability for the program. As spaces are limited, students are strongly encouraged to arrange for a visit as soon as possible.
