Students continue to receive ongoing English language instruction and support as they build on the skills developed in ELSK 0702. Reading, writing, and interactive communication (listening and speaking) skills are taught concurrently and in conjunction with topics in the Health Care Assistant Level 3 curriculum. Students continue to develop their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills through real world tasks within the clinical settings and are assessed using the target Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) levels. Students’ interpersonal professional communication skills are enhanced in class and in clinical while providing care for clients in a complex care setting. Throughout the course, students also increase their awareness of workplace expectations, environment and appropriate language. Upon completion of ELSK 0703 students have the communication skills required to provide personal care for clients in a complex care setting and to interact professionally and appropriately with clients and health team members.
