Nunavimmi Pigiursavik Centre is on a hill overlooking the river. It consists essentially of two large buildings, namely, the Centre and a residence for students from outside Inukjuak.
The Centre is made up of two sections. The taller, more spacious one is divided into two large multiple-purpose working areas which can quickly and easily be converted to accommodate various training programs requiring a large work area. Classrooms and two storage rooms, one for storage and the other for the distribution of supplies complete this section.
The other section is composed of theoretical training classrooms, a computer room, a day care centre, a television studio and offices.
Linking the two sections, an agora filled with sunshine affords students a pleasant gathering place, whether it be for a break, a short pause, a formal meeting or a special event.
The Residence comprises 26 housing units, a cafeteria for 80, a study hall, and a playroom. In addition to preparing food for students and visitors, the kitchen also serves as a training lab for students of professional cooking.
The Residence can accommodate single students and students with one or two children.
Student Animators offer support, and host activities every evening until 11 p.m. and all day on weekends.
The primary objective of student services at Pigiursavik is to favour every student’s apprenticeship. The following resources are intended to help students reach that objective:
• a readaptation agent ;
• student animators ;
• a student committee ;
• a daycare ;
• teachers ;
• support staff ;
• two administrators
Each of the programs seeks to develop skills, know-how and attitudes necessary for a career. Students learn to successfully carry out the tasks related to the profession they have chosen.
The admission form is available from the centre director in your school and from any Adult Education & Vocational Training Centre. You can also obtain it from your local KRG employment officer.
People who have to move to another municipality to take a program may be eligible for financial aid for housing and transportation, for themselves and their dependents (spouse / children). A weekly allowance will be added if the student does not have any other source of income.
Complete documentation on the rights and responsibilities of transfer students, as well as transfer application forms, are available from your school principal and from all Adult Education & Vocational Training Centres.
Prior Education and Recognition of Work Experience
The record of each student is studied individually. In some Vocational Training Programs, students can advance more quickly in the program because of their work experience.
Vocational Training generally runs from the end of August to the middle of May, with a break at Christmas and Easter.
Students in General Education begin when they are ready and available. They may enroll at any time.
