This program is a two-year, post-secondary, modified program designed for individuals with learning challenges such as intellectual disabilities, brain injuries, learning disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder, mental health issues, and other related challenges. The program provides students with an opportunity to enhance their academic skills through regular college classes, while developing vocational abilities through career-related, field placement experiences.
Students choose an area of concentration from Lambton’s many program offerings, based on seat availability. Examples include Culinary Management, Fashion Business, Hospitality & Tourism Management, Protection, Security & Investigation, Office Administration, Personal Support Worker, Renovation Technician, Sports & Recreation Management, Digital Photography and Welding Techniques. Upon completion of the program, the student will receive an Ontario College Certificate in CICE from Lambton College.
Our team of CICE Learning Specialists and the Employment Liaison provide students with in-class assistance, weekly tutoring outside the classroom, and job coaching. Students receive supports in the form of modifications and accommodations. Examples of modifications include altering the overall curriculum, changing the level of learning by adjusting the course learning outcomes, and tailoring assignments and tests to meet individual needs. Accommodations depend on the student’s abilities and generally include notetaking, scribing, extended test times and other related supports both inside and outside the classroom setting.
Through the CICE program, students with learning challenges have the exciting opportunity to complete a college program with courses tailored through a modification process to fit their individual academic abilities.
