Interest-Based Learning at Eastern Shores School Board
In the province of Quebec, Eastern Shores School Board is very prominent with 16 youth sector schools and five adult/vocational education centers. One of these adult/vocational education centers is right here in Listuguj, housed at LMDC.
Eastern Shores School Board offers a variety of training and courses for those interested in furthering their education, and as of 2023, the school board is now looking to offer part-time, interest-based learning courses. While these courses would not offer any transferrable credits, they will allow individuals to continue their education with hands-on learning and gain the knowledge and tools to use in everyday life.
As of right now, this is a call out to the community of Listuguj and surrounding areas, to see how many people would be interested in enrolling in these courses. The courses will only be offered based on the level of interest.
The courses will be done in a casual, part-time manner at LMDC, which may include evenings and weekends. There is no tuition or fees for applicants. Refreshments will also be provided to participants.
Here are the potential courses:
- DIY Repairs for Homeowners
This course will allow individuals to acquire the skills needed to remedy common household malfunctions.
Topics to cover: Drywall, Basic Plumbing and Troubleshooting, Installing Taps, and Toilet Repair 101.
Two nights per week for five weeks, beginning in mid-March.
- Outdoor Education

Topics to cover: Ethics, gear, headings and landmarks, Fire Making, Fundamentals of Food and Water, and shelter making.
March 18th and 25th, and April 1st
- Personal Budgeting
This course will provide instruction and advice when it comes to budgeting and money management.
Topics to cover: Budgeting basics, Budgeting scenarios and Personal (Household) budgeting.
