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.

“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.”
