Portage provides educational opportunities for municipal employees


Portage College has signed a three-year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Village of Boyle to offer micro-credential training to municipal employees and elected representatives. Participants will be able to enrol in one complimentary course annually, with access to programming that ranges from permaculture to business essentials. Portage and Boyle will also collaborate to explore work-integrated learning placements for college students; develop promotional, economic development, and training opportunities for the village; and provide service benefits to registered students at Portage. “We’re all about lifelong learning and making our community thrive, and this partnership is a big step towards that,” said Portage President Nancy Broadbent.
