Vanguard Centre of Expertise

A word from the Chair of the Board of Directors

As Chair of the Board of Directors of the Vanguard Centre of Expertise, I am very pleased and enthusiastic to share these words with you.

Over the past years, we have witnessed an increase in the number of students with learning difficulties in Quebec.  The Vanguard Centre of Expertise provides an essential support not only to students at the elementary and high school levels and their parents, but also to teachers through workshops specially designed for them.

Workshops are also being offered to Cegeps where we have seen an increase of more than 1000% of the number of students with learning difficulties, and the Centre is responding to the need for support for teachers at this level.  

The Vanguard Centre of Expertise relies on a wide range of expertise in order to present the « Vanguard approach » and to meet the needs of the larger community.
