(St. John’s) Today, Keyin College’s International Division has announced a new strategic partnership with the Asia-Pacific Caregiver & Healthcare Training Centre (APC & HTC) designed to help meet the need of in-demand human resources in sectors deemed critical by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada: Personal Care Attendant and Home Support Worker.

Keyin College and APC & HTC have signed a Memorandum of Understanding focused on the joint delivery of education and training for students wishing to pursue a career in Newfoundland and Labrador in the following capacities: personal care attendant and home support worker. Together, the partners will provide best in class education, training and career opportunities and provide local employers with access to a new wave of well-trained, highly-capable, and fully-screened candidates.

With a more than 42-year history delivering high quality, community-minded education, Keyin College has produced tens of thousands of skilled workers to support key sectors of the province’s economy over the years and continues to be well positioned to help address current worker shortages in healthcare.

“Increasingly we are living and working in a global community, where Newfoundland and Labrador is uniquely positioned to address its worker shortages through local and international collaboration opportunities,” said Craig Tucker, President of Keyin College. “As the province’s largest private college, we are thrilled to sign this new Memorandum of Understanding to provide in-demand curriculums jointly with APC & HTC that not only meet and exceed training standards, but also produce much-needed graduates who are work-ready.”

Located in the Philippines, APC & HTC is one of the most innovative and highly respected training institutions in the Philippines where for the past 20 years, they have been graduating students who successfully go on to work in healthcare both domestically and internationally. 

“As one of the most reliable and innovative healthcare training institutions in the Philippines, we are excited to join forces with Keyin College to offer world-class healthcare training to our students and graduates,” said Marlina Tan, President of Asia-Pacific Caregiver & Healthcare.
