Anytime Is the Right Time to Learn

Welcome to Westshore Centre for Learning & Training (WCLT) and thank you for choosing our school! We are confident that you will find your experience at Westshore to be engaging and rewarding because as a School of Choice, all 4000 of our students have chosen Westshore to meet their personal learning goals and achieve graduation or upgrade course work to enter post-secondary or career training opportunities. Your decision to invest time and energy into your education demonstrates that you have set in motion what is necessary to build your future. We thank you for the privilege of allowing us to join you on your journey to re-define success through learning!

At Westshore Centre you will find every possible opportunity to follow your own path and to hone your skills as a learner. We have solutions for your every need and learning style; from taking courses on-line if you prefer to work at your own pace from home or we provide teacher based face-to-face instruction and small group instruction. If you require even more flexibility we have a drop in “storefront” schedule and classes which run during the day, in the afternoon and in the evening because at Westshore anytime is “the right time to learn.”

We are proud to present and offer the skills and expertise of our teaching and support staff. This incredible group of professionals has been assembled to help you fulfill your learning goals. Each of our staff is committed to finding creative and unique ways to challenge and support you on your journey to re-define success, whatever it takes! Over the course of this year, we challenge each of you to build relationships and to take advantage of the opportunities to make this year as productive, fulfilling and memorable as possible; let’s make this one count!

We look forward to working with all of you and getting to know you as the year unfolds. If we can be of assistance or help you in any way along your journey, please come see us.
