Where to start

Whatever your previous experience, taking a role in one of the leading sectors of the next decade means you need to know what to prepare for. In Canada, while some industries face a long recovery to pre-COVID levels, some sectors, including manufacturing, have almost fully recovered 1 . Employment has increased in both the services-producing and goods-producing sectors. In services, monthly gains were led by accommodation and food services, educational services as well as information, culture and recreation. In the goods sector, employment gains were largest in manufacturing. Roles in these areas are all considered to offer good career paths for the foreseeable future and Academy of Learning can prepare you for taking a job in one of our country’s thriving industries.

What one of our graduates said…

After 39 years of service in the Canadian forces, Retired Lieutenant Colonel David Mason decided he was not done yet. Quickly realizing he wasn’t ready to retire, the 57-year-old decided it was time for him to improve on his résumé as an aerospace engineer, with a focus on business and office skills.


“With the help of a Vocational Counsellor, I found the Academy of Learning in Ottawa – an easy daily commute. I chose a 28-week course in business office skills including the full Microsoft Office suite.


“By completing the program, I was able to secure a part-time, civilian role with the Department of National Defense and I’m looking forward to applying my new skill set. What I appreciated the most about my learning experience with Academy of Learning was the excellent multi-dimensional syllabus allowing independent, self-paced completion. The individual support within a flexible schedule also gave me the freedom to plan and satisfy my own personal demands.

“The staff were extremely professional and competent, showing they cared about making my learning experience positive and enjoyable. Having 39 years of service to Canada, I didn’t think there was much more I could learn but my experience at the Academy of Learning has taught me that learning is a lifelong activity.”
