Developmental Services Worker (DSW) Apprentice Program - 2022/2023
With the Developmental Services Worker (DSW) Apprenticeship, you continue to be employed while going to school part-time. You can have a positive and direct impact on the lives of people with developmental disabilities and personal and professional satisfaction. Fanshawe's Developmental Services Worker (DSW) Apprenticeship program will guide you toward your goals while you work.
Beginning January 2020, this program will be offered through Web-Conferencing for distance learners.
Using a biopsychosocial approach to complex needs, you'll become a highly skilled and reflective practitioner supporting people of all ages to live as independently as possible, while promoting inclusive communities. Your courses will be dynamic with a focus on mental and physical health, interpersonal skills, teaching and positive behaviour supports. You'll learn how to collaborate and build relationships with family members, and to work with the diverse network of professionals who support people with developmental disabilities.
