In only 45 weeks of in-class and weekend sessions, you’ll have the skills and knowledge needed to begin your career.
A career as a Personal Support Worker takes heart, compassion and a dedication to helping those most in need. It also takes a highly specialized set of dynamic technical and interpersonal skills. If you’re interested in a career that is personally satisfying, this program is for you.
You’ll begin the program by creating a strong foundation in the fundamentals of personal support. You’ll learn about health and wellness, the human body and how it functions, along with examining mental health issues and life transition theories. In addition to classroom instruction, you’ll also complete placements in long-term care facilities as well as a community placement, where you’ll get valuable experience providing care to clients. This means that you’ll begin your career with a highly developed set of experiences to draw on as you enter the workforce. This program also utilizes simulation learning.
When you graduate, you’ll be ready to work with clients with clearly identified needs, helping to make them comfortable and keeping them safe. You’ll provide personal care for clients in retirement homes, long-term care facilities, hospitals and in the home.

As a university graduate, the Advanced Filmmaking program at Fanshawe was an incredibly welcome change of pace. It’s allowed me to focus on the hands-on aspect of filmmaking that I did not have the chance to learn while in University. The shift from reading theories and essay writing to producing content and connecting with my fellow filmmakers was exactly what I needed.
The environment of AFM is a lot more intimate than the university experience. You are always working in groups to create projects and receiving constant feedback from the professors. If you want to learn the ins and outs making a film, and meet the people who are going to help you do it, there is no better place to go than Fanshawe’s Advanced Filmmaking program.
