Well, look no further! Working as an Educational Assistant, you will find that this career path is a very rewarding and flexible. Many schools are looking for Educational Assistants that will facilitate student learning and give them the opportunity to have more one-on-one assistance than teachers alone can provide.

At the Academy of Learning, Edmonton West, we offer you short term training to help you secure a position as an Educational Assistant. Our 44 week program offers you the flexibility of training on your terms and during the time of day when it most suits you!
You will cover, in depth, the topics of Child Psychology and Teacher’s Aide Instructions along with the hands on development of your computer skills so that you can assist in the classroom with confidence. We start your program with the basics so you don’t need to worry if you can’t type or know nothing about computers. Getting you started from scratch means that when you graduate, you are fully prepared for your future endeavors. This program also includes a one month practicum, so you will leave here with “real-world” experience, which is a critical part of finding gainful employment.
