Assiniboine Community College has recently engaged in two partnerships to support postsecondary education among high school students. ACC has partnered with Sioux Valley Dakota Nation to launch a postsecondary readiness program in the Fall semester. The program will help students from First Nations and rural areas develop the skills they need to transition to postsecondary education in a larger centre. In addition to academic skills, the courses will also cover topics such as taking public transit and finding accommodations and health care. ACC has also announced that it is expanding its support for its Comprehensive Health-care Aide program at Crocus Plains Regional Secondary School. The program was on the cusp of closing, but the college will cover more of the costs associated with the program to keep it running. The program provides high school students with hands-on medical field experience so that they can transition into the industry immediately after graduation. Brandon Sun 1 (Acct.
