New courses in Communications being offered virtually

8 October 2020
Collège Boréal is launching four new customized corporate training courses on the topic of communications. Coordinated by the Toronto campus, the courses will be offered virtually and available from anywhere in the province. They will be of interest to anyone looking to further their knowledge on the topic.

The courses will be taught by subject matter experts who are also experienced practitioners in their field, including the Franco-Ontarian musical trio Les Chiclettes.

“Communications are increasingly important in the context of the current pandemic,” according to Marc Despatie, Director – Communications, Strategic Planning, and Government Relations at Collège Boréal. “These four courses each offer an opportunity to sharpen specific communication tools.”

The four courses being offered are:

Rédaction d’affaires with Annik Chalifour, journalist and professor

Whether you run a business, manage an organization or work in the public service, this course is designed to help you write more effectively in French.

Conversation espagnole with Luis Fonseca, flight attendant and globetrotter

Learn the basics of the Spanish language with a passionate native speaker. You will be able to hold your own while conversing in the language of Cervantes and García Lorca.

Gestion d’association with community organizer Serge Paul

Learn various techniques to ensure your organization is successful. Elaborate and implement effective communication plans and deploy the tools to achieve results.

Expression pour divers médiums with Les Chiclettes

The well-known musical trio will share the secrets to win over audiences, be it in person, through sound, or with video. Learn how to feel at ease on stage or in front of the camera.

Note that all these courses are being offered in French.

Courses will be offered online, using the same digital platform that is used by Collège Boréal for its post-secondary programs and corporate training. The courses will therefore be accessible from anywhere in Ontario.

Classes begin during the week of October 19 and run through to December 16, 2020. Register by contacting Dana at 1-800-361-6673, extension 5120 or by email: danavadee.rajoo@collegeboreal.ca. Cost: $285 for 20 hours of training, including all course material.

“This is the first time in many years that the Toronto campus has organized these types of courses in response to specific community needs,” according to Gilles Marchildon, Director of the Toronto campus. “These workshops expand our range of customized training available to employers as well as language training offered to individuals and professionals.”

This new set of courses demonstrates that as it celebrates its 25th anniversary, Collège Boréal continues to innovate in order to address the needs of francophones in Ontario.
