Shawn has been working at NBCC since 2003. As the Director of Enrolment Management, he supports the delivery and achievement of NBCC’s strategic enrolment goals as it relates to domestic and international student recruitment. Shawn recently moved to Bear Island, New Brunswick, which was named “Island of the Bear” by the Indigenous People of the Saint John River valley. Bear Island is technically a misnomer, as the islands no longer exist, and the entire area referred to as Bear Island is on the shore of the river.
Bridge the Ocean project
Bridge the Ocean is a partnership project of the Erasmus+ program, which creates a model of global mobility and cooperation between European and Canadian Colleges. The partners are four vocational education and training (VET) colleges from Finland, two from Canada and one from the Netherlands and Denmark. In the project, two European and one Canadian study units are planned, which will be piloted with a multinational group during the project.
The project is the first European Erasmus+ VET project that involves partners from outside Europe. The main goals of the Bridge the Ocean partnership project are to increase the number of global mobility of students and experts, teachers, and at the same time promote the development of both professional and international competence and key skills. The project seeks visibility and interest in the internationalization of VET.
