Shelburne Campus Shelburne

Shelburne Campus is located just outside the historic town of Shelburne. Programs offered span the fields of Business, Health and Human Services, Natural Sciences, Sound Recording/Editing & Production and Adult Learning Program.

Shelburne Campus is the smallest campus in the College. The personal attention to the needs of each and every student is the cornerstone of the campus. Faculty and staff are committed to providing a quality-training environment that will prepare graduates for employment in today’s highly competitive market. Labs, classrooms and shop areas utilize state-of-the art equipment and the latest technologies. Modern computer facilities (including full access to the Internet from the approximately 100 computers on campus) form an integral part of the training of the student for the ever-changing demands of the modern workplace.

All Certificate programs can lead directly to employment. Each program has a minimum five-week “work experience” term where students are placed in Industry. Two-year diploma programs include a five-week work experience at the end of the second year. The Adult Learning Program accepts students on a continuous intake basis which greatly increases students’ accessibility to upgrading.

The campus is well known for its community involvement and partnerships with Industry. Faculty and staff are active members of such organizations as Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Chambers of Commerce, the Arts Council as well as Program Advisory committees made up of industry representatives and faculty.

Shelburne Campus’ student population consists of a diversity of students from the local communities as well as students from other parts of Nova Scotia and Canada. The Campus actively pursues training opportunities in both traditional areas and in customized training. The needs of the Aquaculture and Entertainment industries have been proactively addressed through programs in aquaculture, and recording arts which are unique to the College. Faculty and staff meet twice per year to develop an “Action Plan” for the growth and development of the campus.

Physical and programming transformations will allow the campus to continue to change and grow to meet the needs of the students and employers in the local workforce and the new global economy.
