NOVA SCOTIA COMMUNITY COLLEGE-STRAIT AREA
Mission Statement:The Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) is a province-wide institution for vocational training and education. Certificate and diploma programs are offered in business, health services, human services, trades and technology at the Strait Area Campus. The Nautical Institute in Port Hawkesbury offers training in the commercial marine and fish harvesting industries. NSCC students gain practical lab and workshop experience and complete a work placement. Courses are developed in consultation with government, business and industry, and reflect sector demand and employment trends. NSCC instructors are recruited directly from industry and maintain their connections in the field, thus ensuring that NSCC programs remain practical and relevant. 91 per cent of NSCC graduates are employed; 80 per cent work in their chosen field. Renovations were recently completed at the Strait Area Campus and include a new trades wing with a welding shop, steam and pipe shop, carpentry shop and power engineering shop.
