London, ON., January 8, 2020 – Last month the first course in tbk’s Fanshawe College Web Design Course Series completed. The course trained web development students on how to build corporate WordPress websites. The instruction is part of a course series that Fanshawe College and tbk partnered on in September 2019 that aims to have students be more highly employable upon graduation and to help better Canada’s economy.
“Consistently Fanshawe College holds some of the province’s highest rates of employability amongst community colleges,” said Michelle Giroux, Associate Dean, Fanshawe College. “Industry led courses like tbk’s are very innovative and can help push our college and the broader province forward to closing the skills gap for industry and students alike. Thank you to the web design experts at tbk for assisting our students with higher learning.”
“Fanshawe College is an integral pillar to our region’s economic vibrancy,“ said Andrew Schiestel, President, tbk. “Thousands of students graduate from Fanshawe College each year. There is an opportunity for industry to partner more with the college so that students graduating can more quickly find employment. When industry helps our college in ways like this web design course series, it’ll shorten the skills gap and improve Canada’s economy.”
Students at Fanshawe College who are actively enrolled the Interactive Media Design and Interactive Media Specialist programs may apply to attend a tbk Fanshawe College web design course. Students who successfully complete a course gain credits in their co-curricular record.
This month tbk will commence another course for Fanshawe College students: this next one will train students on how to develop e-commerce websites.
