NSCC College2Career Open Houses

By: Kirill Kedrinski

If you are interested in completing a short-term, highly supportive certificate program to qualify for well-paid, in-demand careers in health care, financial services or advanced manufacturing, North Shore Community College's new innovative College2Career (C2C) program may be for you. Open Houses are planned for potential participants who wish to learn more about the program on Wednesday, July 17 from 5-7 pm in the Lynn campus cafeteria, 300 Broad Street, and on Wednesday, July 24 from 5-7 pm, at the Danvers Campus cafeteria, 1 Ferncroft Road. 



The College2Career program offers academic and job readiness support as well as placement assistance to students enrolled in more than 15 credit and noncredit certificates at NSCC. C2C, which is enrolling now for September classes, is targeted to those who may be unemployed or underemployed or thinking of a career change. 



The program operates in partnership with the local One-Stop Career Center to help students navigate their career pathway with community-based employment services. The Open Houses will feature on-site specialists and resource tables with information about: admissions, financial aid, career maps, and applicable credit and noncredit certificates. Representatives from the Career Center will be on hand to discuss funding for noncredit programs. 



Made possible through a grant from the US Department of Labor, C2C promotes entry into the following careers: advanced manufacturing, financial services, central sterile processing, dental assisting, EKG/phlebotomy, electronic medical records, medical interpreting, nurse assistant/home health aide, pharmacy technician, developmental disabilities-direct support, mental health, gerontology, and substance abuse counseling. 



C2C will include a new health care course of study, Health Care Technician, a 28-credit certificate program designed for those wishing to obtain an entry level health care job, or those who already have one but wish to enhance their knowledge and skills and obtain a credential. 



Student success is paramount in C2C, thus the following supports are built into the specialized program: a "C2C Navigator" co-located at NSCC and local One-Stop Career Center who escorts students through the college transition process, including financial aid, admissions and registration processes, and connects their career development services; Achievement Coaches who provide students individualized attention, career and academic counseling throughout the program; tutoring; and assistance to eligible individuals to access occupational and skills training courses, job search assistance, and relationship building with professionals and employers in their field. 



For information on College2Career or the Open Houses, contact Lorin Buksa, C2C Navigator, at 978-762-4000, ext. 4413, lbuksa@northshore.edu
