Delegates at the launch of Sheridan CAPs courses at the Brampton Library

Sheridan College and Brampton Library Team up to Expand Course Offerings

September 09, 2019

Educators, librarians, students and residents gathered last Thursday evening to officially launch the next phase of Sheridan College and Brampton Library’s partnership to expand 21st century learning options in Downtown Brampton. Sheridan will begin offering continuing education courses at Four Corners Branch Library next week.

Dr. Janet Morrison, President and Vice Chancellor of Sheridan College and City of Brampton Councillors Harkirat Singh and Rowena Santos joined Brampton Library Board Chair Jaipaul Massey-Singh and CEO Rebecca Raven to make the announcement.

Dr. Morrison noted that Sheridan’s first campus opened in Brampton in 1967, and has been an anchor in the community for over fifty years. “Sheridan strives to be the destination of choice for skilling, upskilling and reskilling workers and learners in our communities,” she said. “Through this exciting partnership with Brampton Library, we’re thrilled to offer some of our most in-demand professional courses right here in downtown Brampton.”

“On behalf of the Brampton Library Board, I’m very much looking forward to hearing about not just the enrollment statistics, but specifically the stories shared by the people who graduate from these programs and the successes that they have, in contributing back to Brampton,” said Massey-Singh.

Councillor Santos remarked: “The City of Brampton is committed to providing post-secondary learning opportunities in our city. We are proud of our longstanding partnership with Sheridan and excited about their collaboration with the Brampton Library in the downtown. Creative solutions and partnerships like this give students access to lifelong learning and keep them connected to today’s job market and employers of the future.” Councillor Singh added: “We are so excited about this new venture. In a City like Brampton where we are constantly evolving, growing and trying to remain future-ready, partnerships like these are what help us thrive.”  

The initial offering includes three introductory level courses, all of which are the first step to achieving a certificate in their respective disciplines of Data Science, Business Analysis and Project Management: 

  • Introduction to Analytics and Big Data
  • Business Analysis Introduction
  • Fundamentals of Project Management

Residents can find more details about these courses and register online.
