I feel they have a good standard of teaching and that the staff is highly efficient in imparting knowledge to their students.

    It took a lot of convincing for me to take the HCA program. It’s really hard to work full-time, have a family and go to school at the same time. But it’s very rewarding when your family, your husband, your classmates and your teacher are very supportive. I have learned how to multitask and how to manage my time, as well as exercised discipline and determination in finishing my course. I am grateful and very glad that I made this huge life decision. Thanks to Gateway College staff and instructors who taught us everything that we need to know for our new chosen careers.

    Gateway College is a perfect match for those who are willing to learn or study as a Care-Aide.  I worked as a Live-In-Caregiver and couldn't afford to study full-time, so I was glad that the college offers Saturday classes and the tuition is affordable.  I am grateful to the staff and our instructors for their support!  I finished the course near the start of the month, and just two weeks later I started work full time at a facility.  Now I am working as a Care-Aide and getting double the pay of my previous work!

    Gateway College is a perfect school for students like myself, that work Monday to Friday and wish to study part-time. I was very happy to learn that Gateway offered weekend courses, allowing me to continue working at my current job. The location of Gateway College is good because it is so convenient and accessible to Transit, as well as many restaurants that students can eat at during their lunch breaks. The College is also well-equipped with new equipment, enabling students to learn quickly and efficiently, as well as acquire a variety of practical skills and aspects of education that are not solely based from textbooks.
    The instructors at Gateway have rich educational backgrounds, as well as a wide variety of experiences to share with students, enabling motivational and relatable learning.  The staff members are also very accommodating to students' inquiries and suggestions, making students feel comfortable and welcome. An aspect about Gateway that I really found useful was the fact that the school assists graduates in creating suitable resumes, and supplies facility and job opening information to ensure that students are able to obtain desirable jobs upon graduation.
    The graduation ceremony that Gateway holds for their graduate students is also very exciting! I enjoyed my experience at Gateway, and have actually recommended about five of my friends to enroll, and some of them have already graduated!

  • Testimonials

    At first I was not sure if I was going to enrol in the Care Aide course because people encouraged me not to, and said that it was a really tough job. I also had no friends that were taking the course, and it's difficult to embark on tasks like this alone. I was also concerned that my brain was a little rusty from being out of school for so long. But despite all of this, one of Gateway's admissions counsellors convinced me to push through to my goals, so I did. Now I am already going through my new job orientation at the facility that I did my practicum in. Thank You Gateway College!
