Important Note: Before completing the questionnaire below, please note that the PSW ELT program Woodgreen Newcomer Services offers is NOT a PSW Certificate program, nor replaces the need for one, before being able to work as a PSW. However, people who qualify and complete the PSW ELT program, and a PSW Certificate program at a college, will receive a guaranteed 8-week placement and interview from Woodgreen’s Community Care Unit, as well as a job offer, which will be extended to pre-screened qualifying candidates.
