To meet your employees’ learning goals and your organization’s skill gaps, partner with us to create customized courses for your company or tailor existing programs.

In a partnership with us your organization has access to a unique combination of academic reputation and industry expertise. Designing programs for your unique needs or choosing from a roster of existing course offerings, professional development can be delivered in our space, yours or anywhere in-between.



We are proud to partner with Western University faculties and departments to provide courses, workshops, and diploma/certificate programs, help launch new programs and deliver them to unique audiences.

We also partner with other universities like the Ontario College of Art and Design to provide our students with specialized programming and build upon their existing skill sets.

Western Continuing Studies is active in partnerships with higher education associations, including the Canadian Association of University Continuing Education, Ontario Council for University Lifelong Learning and University Professional Continuing Education Association.



In our community we collaborate with a range of diverse organizations.

In a partnership with Pillar Nonprofit Network, Western Continuing Studies provides financial support for professional development programing to 340 member agencies.

Other examples of community partnerships include our weekly radio show about lifelong learning on Ask the Experts 1290 CJBK; hosting monthly breakfasts for members of International Association of Business Communicators; and attending events hosted by the London Chamber of Commerce, London Economic Development Corporation and TechAlliance.



We collaborate with organizations in the community and around the world to provide our post-degree diploma students with valuable work experiences through our practicum program. Students develop the necessary knowledge and skills over an eight-month period in class to prepare for their first day of practicum. Practicums are four-month, full-time placements that provide students with the work experience necessary to kick-start their careers.  Add a little purple to your organization!
