Products & Services
The Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology provides client-centred settlement ESL learning that intersects educational need with Pathways 2 Education Employment (P2EE). The P2EE foundation focuses on communication for employment in the workplace, with employers and colleagues, and provides the necessary academic English language training required to pursue further education or obtain career-level employment. This approach allows students to learn and build upon existing skills, and supports their settlement into Canadian society.
