Dieppe, June 29, 2018 – Collège communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick (CCNB) and Collège de l’Île renewed their partnership agreement which provides for the delivery of the practical nursing program in French, on Prince Edward Island.

“We are very pleased to renew this agreement with Collège de l’Île,” said Liane Roy, CCNB chief executive officer. “The lack of nursing staff able to offer services in French is a tremendous problem which affects all our provinces. We will contribute significantly to the well-being of our communities by training more French-speaking healthcare professionals who will work in hospitals and care facilities.”

– Collège de l’Île’s second 2018 graduation ceremony was held to recognize students from the bilingual administrative, early childhood educator and youth worker programs with certificates and diplomas.

These new bilingual professionals distinguished themselves by their engagement in pursuing postsecondary education in French in Prince Edward Island, by their efforts in the classroom and their dedication during on-the-job training. These professionals already contribute to the vitality of the Acadian and Francophone community.

Wellington, June 19, 2018 - Collège de l’Île, Prince Edward Island’s French language postsecondary institution, is looking for registered nurses (RN) or licensed practical nurses (LPN) to deliver two programs to train future bilingual health professionals. These positions vary in duration, with a possibility of extension. Full-time positions consist of a 37.5-hour work week.
 
Wellington, May 29, 2018 – Not all Francophones who reside in a majority anglophone province or territory have sufficient English to understand and to make themselves understood when it comes to discussing health challenges.

For Francophone clients, language is often the primary tool in health maintenance and restoration. Communicating in their own language makes it easier for clients to ask for help, explain their experiences and conditions, express their needs and preferences, and take charge of their own health.

“Working with community and government partners to improve access to quality French language health services is at the heart of the mission of the PEI French Health Network, said Véronique Duguay, co-chair of the Health Network. That is why we encourage individuals and organizations to take action and get involved by making their voice heard here on the Island, but also across the country.”

Charlottetown, le 23 mai 2018 - Depuis son arrivée à l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard en 2015, Annie-Pier Leblanc Montreuil a fait son petit bout de chemin en travaillant d’abord comme monitrice de langue, puis comme enseignante suppléante, à l’École La-Belle-Cloche, dans la région de Souris.

« J’étais venue en vacances ici à l’été 2014 et je suis tombée en amour avec l’Île, a partagé Annie-Pier. Ça a été tellement un vrai coup de foudre que par la suite, j’ai tout fait pour pouvoir venir m’établir ici. »

Avant son arrivée chez nous, la technicienne en travail social originaire de la région de Shawinigan, au Québec, a travaillé auprès de diverses clientèles, principalement des adultes. Ces expériences sur le marché du travail lui ont permis d’acquérir des compétences qui lui serviront dans sa nouvelle carrière d’éducatrice de la petite enfance.

« C’est vraiment depuis que je fais de la suppléance à la maternelle et avec les classes de 1re et 2e années que j’ai confirmé ma passion pour la petite enfance, a-t-elle ajouté. Je me sens à l’aise avec les enfants et je souhaite contribuer à l’épanouissement de notre prochaine génération d’Insulaires francophones. »

Charlottetown, May 18, 2018 - Qualified French-speaking early childhood educators are essential for early learning and child care centres to provide children with an environment where they will grow and thrive in French.

There are eight (8) bursaries available now for individuals ready to commit to taking the two-year Early Childhood Care and Education Program at Collège de l’Île, starting in September 2018. To receive the bursary, candidates must be admitted into that program and must commit to work for a minimum of two (2) years in one of the six (6) Francophone early learning and child care centres located in Prince Edward Island upon graduation.




ACA mai2018

Charlottetown, May 18, 2018 - Atlantic Canada’s publicly-funded colleges’ association has a new name, an expanded membership and a new strategic direction. The renewed association will promote the role of public colleges, and effectively collaborate to further economic and social development in Atlantic Canada.

“Atlantic Canada’s publicly-funded colleges make a significant contribution to the economy and to their communities across Atlantic Canada,” said NBCC President and CEO Marilyn Luscombe, current chair of ACA. “As a regional organization, ACA has a strategic priority to raise the profile, brand and awareness of Atlantic Canada’s public colleges, as well as influence public policy with regards to post-secondary education and training and strengthen the public college system in the region.”

Nous sommes en pleine semaine de la santé mentale, du 7 au 13 mai 2018. Au Collège de l’Île, c’est un sujet qui nous tient à cœur ! Afin de #parlerhautetfort et de contribuer à démystifier la santé mentale, nous avons récemment rencontré Janine Gallant, diplômée du Collège, pour qu’elle nous partage son expérience. Janine a eu l’occasion à plusieurs reprises de parler publiquement de santé mentale, y compris dans le cadre d’un symposium organisé par la Commission scolaire de langue française (CSLF), en juin 2017. Voici un extrait vidéo (environ 2 minutes) de notre entrevue avec elle ainsi que l'entrevue au long ci-dessous.



Salut Janine ! Tu viens de quel endroit et quel est ton lien avec le Collège de l’Île ?

Je suis originaire d’Abram-Village, dans la région Évangéline, ici même à l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard. Je suis diplômée du programme services à la personne du Collège. J’ai commencé des études à temps partiel en 2010 et j’ai continué à temps plein, de 2012 à 2014.

La semaine de la santé mentale s’en vient à grands pas et je me demandais pourquoi c’est important pour toi de parler ouvertement de santé mentale.

Je pense qu’une des raisons principales c’est que j’ai vécu moi-même des défis de santé mentale. Quand c’est arrivé, je me sentais seule, comme si je ne pouvais pas en parler. L’étape la plus difficile c’était d’admettre que j’avais un problème. Maintenant, même si je ne suis pas toujours 100 % à l’aise d’en parler, je me force de le faire pour ma famille, pour mes ami.e.s et pour mes collègues de travail pour qu’ils voient que c’est correct d’en parler. Dans le cadre de mon emploi, je travaille avec des familles et c’est important d’en parler dans ce contexte-là aussi pour démystifier le sujet de la santé mentale.

Saviez-vous qu’à chaque année, un Canadien sur cinq vit un problème de santé mentale, mais que TOUS les Canadiens ont une santé mentale?

Ça veut dire que nous connaissons tous quelqu’un qui a eu des défis – un.e. ami.e, un.e collègue de travail ou un.e membre de notre famille – mais que nous ne sommes peut-être pas au courant de leur situation.

– Connecting the student community has never been easier, thanks to a new app launched today.

“We surveyed our students over the last two years and the results were clear: they favour communication through mobile devices,” said Collège de l’Île President, Donald DesRoches. “Two thirds of them have at least 15 apps on their phones and tablets and, they use these devices far more frequently than computers or laptops. Our mobile app is designed to benefit our student population.”

French for the Future 2017 1
Charlottetown, April 24, 2018
– All opportunities for promoting the use of the French language are good opportunities, from mundane everyday activities to taking part in large-scale events such as French for the Future’s Charlottetown Local Forum. That’s exactly what Victoria Gibbs of Little York, PEI, discovered when the she attended her first forum last year.

“I believe that for a lot of students across the country, French is a classroom language which is associated with school and work,” said Ms. Gibbs, a grade 11 student at Charlottetown Rural High School. “French for the Future has shown me that you can live your life in French, make friends, go out, and make amazing memories that will last a lifetime, all in French.”
