Fanshawe understands that you’re busy. That’s why, if you’re looking to fast track your career as a Personal Support Worker but need to complete the program on the weekends, we’ve created a weekend study option. 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.

I did film at Fanshawe and it delivered what it promised. Some of my instructors were awesome while others were so-so. I grew up in London and stayed close to home but realized after I was in the program that there are other schools in Toronto that have a better reputation. Also people talk about Fanshawe's "slacker vibe", but you don't have to fall into that trap. You can find slackers at every school. In the end, I have a stable job in my field and I live in Toronto. So no regrets, but make sure you put in the work and start networking from Day One.
