Please Note: in-person sessions have been cancelled due to the COVID-19. Please check back soon for our future offerings. 

Langara is committed to developing and engaging its employees. Each month, HR offers complimentary professional development sessions to all staff. Upcoming offerings are listed below; please note that pre-registration is required. 

PD session topics are generated through employee feedback. Is there a career-related topic that you want to learn more about? Do you know of any engaging, insightful speakers, or want to lead a session of your own? Are you a leader looking to host a session for your area? Connect with us at hrupdate@langara.ca.

Registration Process

To register for a PD session, email hrupdate@langara.ca with the following:

  • Subject Line: (Title of Session)

  • Body: Full name, Employee ID, email address (if different)

Sessions will be capped at 25 participants (unless otherwise stated). A separate registration email is required for each session. If a session reaches full capacity, we will establish a waitlist. In consideration for waitlisted participants, we request that all registrants notify us at least 48 hours prior to a session if they are no longer able to attend. Attendance will be taken at each session; registrants who miss more than two sessions without notice will only be able to register on the waitlist for future sessions.
