Red River College Language Training Centre
About Red River College Language Training Centre
At its downtown Winnipeg location, the Language Training Centre (LTC) offers innovative and accessible programs for permanent resident students working at CLB 3-8 who want to study either full-time or part-time. Programs include Foundations, Employment and Academic streams, English for Specific Purposes programs, an English for Academic Purposes program, a program for refugees and part-time programs offered in the mornings, afternoons and evenings and in the summer. These programs are offered either face to face or through blended delivery, use the Canadian Language Benchmarks competency framework, and follow a portfolio-based language assessment (PBLA) approach. Our students have as their goal integration into Canadian society, whether through settlement, education and training or employment. A particular strength of our programming is offering learners the opportunity to blend language training with employability skill-building through employment-focused curricula, unpaid work placements, networking opportunities and special events centered around career and pathway planning.
Our qualified, experienced and supportive staff, including faculty, instructional designers, educational assistants, academic coordinators, program facilitators, language assessors, student integration coordinators, counselors and administrative staff, strive to create a learning and teaching environment that supports newcomers in acquiring the communication, socio-cultural, academic, employability and power skills necessary to empower them with the confidence they need to find their own success in the community, while studying, or at work.
In addition to its downtown Winnipeg location, Red River College Language Training Centre has three other rural, small-centre locations in the province of Manitoba: Steinbach, Arborg and Thompson.
