Indigenous Finance and Administration Program

The program is delivered by the Indigenous Leadership Development Institute, Inc in partnership with the Academy of Learning to give twenty (20) participants the opportunity to attend a 14-week Indigenous Finance and Administration Program (IFAP).

The IFAP will educate students with an understanding of office & business etiquette, life skills, resume writing, cultural awareness and tools to successfully pursue a career in a chosen Finance and Administrative career, and then put into practice with a four (4) week work experience placement.

The IFAP is a certified program and the Academy of Learning Career College is an approved Post-Secondary School in Manitoba for Manitoba Student Aid Purposes. The Academy of Learning is registered with the respective governing Provincial Authority.

What makes this program unique is that students will receive one on one support and follow-up to assist in their job search during and after the 14 week program. As well, provide valuable resources and support with career goals and the option to complete their grade 12 Mature Student Diploma, which is very important in opening up the doors to all job opportunities.
