WELLINGTON – Collège Acadie Î.-P.-É. will launch a new free basic skills assessment and coaching service in the new year.


The course is designed to help people acquire the knowledge to pass the General Educational Development Test (GED) or obtain a Grade 12 diploma.  

Donald Desroches,  Collège Acadie Î.-P.-É. president, said this initiative stems from a common need.

“The vast majority of today’s jobs demand at least Grade 12. There are still a lot of people on Prince Edward Island who don’t have their Grade 12, and so we want to help people to equip themselves for a better job,” he said. 

Collège Acadie Î.-P.-É. will assess the educational level of every GED candidate and provide the support and coaching they need to succeed through L’ARC. 

Students may choose to prepare for the GED in either French or English.  

L’ARC is Collège Acadie Î.-P.-É.’s new resource centre, where learners can work with a tutor to improve their reading, writing and math skills. 

 “Tutors at L’ARC work with learners one-on-one or in small groups,” said Alice Bérubé is the Coordinator of L’ARC. “Tutoring at L’ARC is customized to each learner and uses three different models: on site at the Wellington campus, or remotely via videoconference or online.” Students are also supported in preparing job applications or accessing college programs of their choice.
