Brief history

Corporation Concept Alpha of Rouyn-Noranda was founded in January 2001. It was born from the need to help people who want to improve their their French skills (reading, writing, communication) or numeracy skills.

With a desire to take these people out of their isolation by becoming familiar with the words, Concept Alpha became a place of training and support for adults 16 years old and over, and this, through a personalized path and in a context less institutional.

Who are we?

Corporation Concept Alpha of Rouyn-Noranda is a non-profit organization, recognized and funded by the Ministère de l’Éducation. It is a resource for people aged 16 and over, from Rouyn-Noranda, who wish to receive personalized and individual training for their reading, writing, conversation, numeracy or computer skills.

We offer individual training activities, which allows us to develop tools and an approach adapted to the needs and expectations of each person. We also give training to small groups. You come on a voluntary basis, for the sake of learning. We offer custom training plans to learn reading and writing, two essential elements of modern life. Our job is to support you during your training and your progress. We help you fill in your gaps and develop your skills. These achievements will allow you to solve the problems you face everyday: read a newspaper or emails, understand a dosage, fill a form by hand or electronically, help children in their learning, use a ATM, etc.

Our services, offered in a non-institutional setting, are aimed at all those who have not had the chance to learn or who have dropped out of an education system that does not meet their needs. Our courses, offered in a flexible program and closer to the person, allow you to review the knowledge acquired in the past and stimulate your interest:

  • for tests passation (such as the General Development Test, TDG), a return to school or for more advanced studies;
  • to join the job market or increase your chances of advancement with your employer;
  • to have the opportunity to get involved in your environment, and thus find more autonomy.

French Learning

  • French learning is for people of all nationalities who are not fully conversant in oral or written French.
  • By considering your alphabet and ours and adapting our teaching, we work with exercises on the sounds from our alphabet to get a correct pronunciation.
  • These new sounds that you hear every day are an important step in your French learning.
  • The approach is different for each person and requires good preparation.
  • This learning will take you step by step towards a functional French and, consequently, a better integration and a better inclusion in the host society.
