Advanced Education Minister Andrew Wilkinson has said that “A post-secondary education is one of the most important investments an individual will make in their lifetime and it provides a great return that includes higher earning potential. The Ministry of Advanced Education is working to connect B.C. students with the information they need to make informed decisions about post-secondary education so they can take steps on the path to a better future.”

The holiday season is a time when British Columbians reflect on what the year past has brought them and look to new opportunities that lie ahead. Many will decide the time is right to get post-secondary education and training, and that decision has never been more important.

EducationPlannerBC is the best resource for prospective students, parents and school counsellors wanting to understand what post-secondary education and training is offered in B.C., how they can access it and where it can lead them.

The EducationPlannerBC searchable database has:

  • Planning tools such as links to WorkBC career profiles, labour market information including the Blueprint Builder, and WorkBC’s Career Compass and Career Trek.
  • Information on 2,100 post-secondary programs at 25 post-secondary institutions, and information on interdisciplinary programs and student financial aid.
  • An application function that allows users to create a single user account that they can then use to apply to 25 public post-secondary institutions.

The hard work students will put into researching, applying for and completing post-secondary education is investment that pays off. The 2025 B.C. Labour Market Outlook forecasts almost one million job openings in the province over the next ten years. The gateway to 80% of those opportunities is post-secondary education and training.

The public post-secondary sector in B.C. will continue to build on Education Planner BC in 2017. It is part of a shared commitment to ensure that British Columbians can access the education and training they need to improve their lives, and get the education and training they need to be ready for job opportunities.

  1. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working
    with? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough
    time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  2. Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there
    that I’m completely confused .. Any tips? Thanks!

  3. Hello are using WordPress for your blog platform?

    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you need any coding expertise to make your own blog?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  4. This trend in spite, there are still a number of vendors who do not accept business credit cards from their business clientele.
    Prepaid credit cards are a good alternative to regular credit cards for teens and can serve as a type of
    training wheels to ease young people into using credit wisely.
    For even more security, Level 6 NSA and CSS approvedshredders are required to
    reduce a letter sized document to 12,000 particles or more.

  5. Thanks , I have just been looking for information about this subject
    for a while and yours is the greatest I have came upon so far.

    However, what about the conclusion? Are you sure in regards to
    the source?
