Bula Ghosh in the Program Coordinator at Great Plains College and the English Language Training Coordinator. She said, "This helps the employers, by increasing productivity, and better efficiency at work. At the same time the employee gets the opportunity perhaps for promotion, getting the opportunity to try working in another department, so it works both ways."

While the program provides many opportunities for communication and workplace skills development, it also provides a chance for career goal setting and Canadian Citizenship preparation.
