Willis College, The Grove partner on living classroom program, guarantee employment for PSW students


Willis College and the Grove Nursing Home in Arnprior have partnered on a “living classroom” program for personal support worker (PSW) students. The eight-month program includes an onsite classroom portion and a clinical placement at The Grove. Graduates are guaranteed employment at The Grove, as well as up to $15K in provincial incentives. “I think we’re just in such a shortage of staff right now that we really do need that [incentive] push,” said Willis alumnus and PSW Haley Bain. Ontario PSW Association CEO Miranda Ferrier told CTV News that there is a significant demand for PSW staff across Ontario, with 24,000 needed in long-term care by 2026.
