Are you new to Canada? NorQuest College supports your settlement in Alberta and Canada by offering courses that will help you develop basic English language proficiency, settlement knowledge, and essential skills.
Our classes range from basic literacy to CLB 7, as well as specialized courses in LINC American Sign Language (ASL), Youth LINC, LINC Volunteer, Prep for Online Learning, and several employment-related options.
Classes include full-time and part-time (evenings) in-person, hybrid, and online delivery options that allow you to study at your own pace and at a time of your choice to achieve your educational goals. Our community service learning activities are designed to provide learning opportunities while making a meaningful contribution to the community and will prepare you for further education or career options.
Our educational streams allow students of similar educational backgrounds to learn together. In addition to language and settlement training, our learner support services, career-oriented environment and supports such as employment certificate training, and college activities help newcomers advance their learning, provide clear pathways to employment, and boost their confidence.
