QUEBEC CITY, Feb. 15, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - TÉLUQ University is proud to pursue its commitment to serve the military community by partnering with the Military Employment Transition Program (MET), an initiative developed by Canada Company to assist Canadian Armed Forces veterans, reservists and transitioning members who are seeking jobs in the civilian sector.
"As a member of the educational network of Canada Company's MET Program, we will contribute to the support of military members and veterans engaging into university studies as part of their transition towards a civilian career. In this age of mobility, this partnership is congruent with our mission for the past 45 years now: university education available to all," said Martin Noël, President of TÉLUQ University.
Remotely accessible from anywhere in the world, TÉLUQ University has been providing services to members of the Canadian Armed Forces (Regular and Reserve Forces) since 1981. To this day, TÉLUQ University has welcomed over 3,000 military students, of which more than a 1,000 graduated from a degree, diploma or attestation of studies. Created specifically to better serve the needs of this clientele, the Service d'accréditation et d'encadrement pour les militaires (SAEM) of TÉLUQ University provides personalized support, recognition of credits for your military and training experience, and exam coordination under supervision outside Quebec and abroad.
"With an average of 22% (1577) of our MET Members leaving the military with a high school education, our partnership with TELUQ offers a more rapid, seamless but critical step for our members in transition to realize the remarkable experience and value they bring to corporate Canada. The ability to access TELUQ's online learning anywhere in combination with receiving a prior learning assessment for their military experience will fast track them to a civilian accreditation and increase their marketability in the civilian sector." Angela Mondou, President,Canada Company.
