Professional Development That Empowers Your Workforce

Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other. - John F. Kennedy

Educational Assistance

Through employee agreements, many employers provide educational assistance for staff to develop skills and gain knowledge, which can be applied directly to their roles.


If you are eligible for educational funding, the most common method is for employees to pay for their own tuition when they register for classes. The employee is then reimbursed when he or she submits the receipts and evidence of earning a pass upon completion of the class.

If you are unsure whether you are eligible to receive educational assistance funding, speak to your manager or your organization's Human Resources department.


For our Corporate Members, Western Continuing Studies provides several options to make the most of educational assistance funding to yield immediate and long-term results:

  • Discounts on multiple enrollments
  • Company invoicing, so students don't have to pay up front
  • We can work within your training budgets to develop customized programs to suit your educational needs.
