The two-year Community Integration through Co-operative Education (CICE) program is designed to enhance academic and vocational skills for individuals with exceptionalities and other significant learning challenges.

Students take core courses in topics such as human relations and communications, job skills, life skills, computer skills, and health and wellness. In addition, students take modified programming, with support from Learning Facilitators, from a Fleming diploma program of their choice in (subject to change and to availability):

  • Business
  • Early Childhood Education
  • Recreation and Leisure
  • Hospitality

Courses in these areas have been intentionally modified to suit the unique learning needs. These modified courses will allow the CICE students to develop applied learning and life skills.

Throughout the program, students will participate in work placements intended to develop and enhance skills and provide the opportunity to practice essential employability skills such as time management, strengthen independence and self-confidence, and practice and explore vocational goals.
