Gateway College is registered and accredited by the Private Career Training Institutes Agency (PCTIA) and is located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, one of the most beautiful and livable cities in North America. The facility is centrally located in downtown Vancouver on West Broadway. The two story, very visible corner building is currently being restored to present itself to the community with a fresher look and an interior designer is creating a more comfortable and modern ambiance for students and visitors to enjoy.
Gateway College can proudly state that it has been training students since 1986 to be resident care attendants and long-term care aids. Gateway College's students are working as nursing assistants in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and for home support agencies. They obtain their practicum at the school laboratories, reputable hospitals, and facilities for a total of 320 hours when enrolled in the resident care attendant program and for a total of 120 hours when in the long-term care aide program.
Gateway College invites you to participate in orientation activities organized to complement the programs of your department. Mark your calendar now so you don’t miss this excellent opportunity to get to know others and learn about Gateway College and much more. We have tried to include something for everyone. All new students are required to attend the welcome orientation session. We look forward to welcoming you in person.
Our students gain an enriched understanding of their academic program through practical application. The practicum experience can motivate students to further education as well as lead to relevant employment after graduation. Studies show that students with practicum experience gain employment sooner after graduation, have higher salaries, and are more likely to find employment related to their degree area than others. Practicum coordinators observe students growing in maturity and self confidence as they progress through their program.
You will be never alone at Gateway College when you need help with an academic or personal matter. For over 20 years, our Student Services has helped thousands of students. If our staff can't help you directly, they will refer you to someone at the College or in the community who can.
