A Message from Andrea Welling:

I am honored to be chosen as a recipient of the 2011 Ellen Edwards CDP Award of Distinction.

I am thoroughly enjoying all my courses and instructors through the Career Development Practice (CDP) program at Douglas College. A recent highlight was an assignment for the Introduction to Employment Counselling course. I helped a friend’s sister in her next steps with career exploration and she was successful at getting a job interview almost immediately.

The CDP program is providing the skills and information for me to become a competent career development practitioner in the field. I also loved our experience to participate in the annual BCCDA conference as volunteers.

Thank you for this Award.
