Advanced Digital and Professional Training (ADaPT)

ADaPT is a skills development and internship program aimed at bridging the employment gap for recent graduates. The program is facilitated by Ryerson University's TRSM Diversity Institute. The program was previously funded by the Government of Ontario.

ADaPT provides hands-on workshops in digital training, communications, research, business financials, personal branding, project management and much more. Read more about ADaPT Core training here.

ADaPT helps match new grads with paid work placements.

ADaPT works to enhance the employment prospects of recent university graduates, and coaches them one-on-one in preparation to enter the workforce. Please be advised that while the ADaPT team helps new grads find meaningful employment, it is not guaranteed that they will be matched.
