Eastern Academy, CNA sign articulation agreement

Collaboration provides new pathway to develop students’ skillsets
Posted July 6, 2022

ST. JOHN’S, NL – Graduates of Eastern Academy’s Information Systems Specialist+ program will have direct-entry acceptance into the third year of College of the North Atlantic’s (CNA) Bachelor of Applied Information Technology – Systems and Network Cybersecurity degree starting September 2022.

This pathway is thanks to an articulation agreement signed between the two post-secondary institutions on Wednesday, July 6. The applied degree is CNA’s first and one of only a few cyber security degrees in the country.

“Articulation agreements, such as this one, provide valuable educational and career options for learners,” says Lisa Lovelady, Vice President Academic & Chief Operating Officer at Eastern Academy. “There are so many exciting opportunities in the IT sector and collaborations, such as these, allow learners to continue their studies toward an applied degree right here in Newfoundland and Labrador.”

The applied degree is currently being offered in St. John’s at CNA’s Prince Philip Drive (PPD) campus. Steve Warren, CNA’s Dean of the School of Business and Information Technology (IT), says response to the new degree has been robust and the college is looking to expand those eligible to enroll in it.

“To go into Year 3 of our program, you need strong foundational skills in system and network administration,” said Warren. “Through this agreement, we are acknowledging that the program at Eastern Academy provides that solid foundation. In addition, CNA’s own Computer Systems & Networking and Computing Systems Engineering Technology programs can also avail of direct-entry acceptance into the degree. We also hope that professionals working in the field will consider it as a viable option for their workplaces.”

Jason Rolls, Vice President, Academic and Applied Research at CNA, says there are times when it’s crucial for post-secondary institutions to collaborate on societal issues. In this case, cybersecurity is one of the fastest-growing subsets of crime in the world. According to Statistics Canada, almost six out of 10 (57 per cent) Canadian Internet users reported experiencing a cyber security incident in 2018. CNA continuously works with industry stakeholders to identify solutions.

“For post-secondary training institutions to meet the current labour market demand, we need to work together to ensure our programs are relevant,” said Rolls. “This agreement is a great example of how we can do that for the benefit of both institutions. Together, we will have career-ready graduates who will help businesses and organizations to overcome their IT challenges and provide preventive short- and long-term solutions.”

Some benefits of this new agreement include:

  • Increasing the supply of well-qualified, highly-trained Information Technology professionals in the workforce;
  • Increased employment opportunities and earning potential for new graduates; and,
  • Graduates will receive both a college diploma from Eastern Academy and an applied degree from CNA.

Massage Addict Partners With Academy Canada and Eastern Academy Offering Scholarships To Massage Therapy Students in Newfoundland and Labrador

Posted June 16, 2021

Massage Therapy is a major growth industry, with more than 10,000 Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) across Canada1, and with more Canadians than ever looking to actively and proactively manage their personal health and wellbeing. According to the Fraser Institute, 25 per cent more Canadians have tried Massage Therapy for their routine healthcare needs over the past decade, as a way to address back or neck issues, pain management, muscle tension and more.

With this increased interest in Massage Therapy support, Massage Addict, Canada’s premier provider of therapeutic services,recognized the demand for Registered Massage Therapists and, starting this year, will support Massage Therapy students at Academy Canada and Eastern Academy in Newfoundland and Labrador. Massage Addict will fund two $1000 entrance scholarships as well as two $1000 graduate scholarships per institution. A $5000 Tuition Reimbursement Program for one student in the province will also be funded. This is a total of $13,000 annually. “We are excited to be partnering with both Academy Canada and Eastern Academy on initiatives to help people realize their dreams of becoming Registered Massage Therapists,” says Fraser Clarke, CEO at Massage Addict. “As more and more Canadians add Massage Therapy to their regular wellness routines, the demand for Registered Massage Therapists will only increase.”

Academy Canada and Eastern Academy, Newfoundland and Labrador’s leading massage therapy schools, are excited about this new partnership and the opportunities it will bring. “Academy Canada is thrilled about the support Massage Addict is providing to our students at both the St. John’s and Corner Brook campuses,” says Anita Morgan, Regional Director at Academy Canada. “We greatly appreciate Massage Addict’s generosity.” Deborah Guest, Campus Director at Eastern Academy,echoes this sentiment: “Eastern Academy is proud to help future Registered Massage Therapists train to join this amazing field. Connecting graduates to rewarding employment is top priority for each and every student who walks through our doors. Thank you to Massage Addict for the support.”
