VLS Canada
The VLS team is a leader in innovative solutions to meet learning-related needs. Our goal is to create opportunities for all people by developing and implementing flexible, sustainable support models that address diverse adult-learning needs across the country.
Our virtual learning strategists use our screening and diagnostic services to ensure they understand each individual's needs. Then, they construct comprehensive, customized support plans for those with learning disabilities or essential skills gaps to meet those needs and enable clients to reach their goals.
This person centred approach has enabled many talented individuals to remain in, or transition to, the workforce. Having proven the success of our model in partnership with apprenticeship authorities' services, VLS will be entering into service agreements with other organizations wanting to utilize our model/services with workplace clients and adult learners.
