Enhanced Language Training (ELT) Success Story – Ghazaleh P.

Ghazaleh, a recent participant of the Health & Wellness program, recently shared her testimonial and success story.  As a recent newcomer and internationally trained & practiced OB/GYN Surgeon in Iran, Ghazaleh was finding it difficult to access the Canadian job market.  With help from our ELT program, she was able to improve her business English skills, understand the Canadian job market and workplace culture, learn about the rules and regulations governing her sector, and secure a 6-week job placement.  Ghazaleh is now gainfully employed in her profession, and grateful to the program for helping her navigate the transitional challenges internationally professionals face when entering the Canadian job market.
