||Certificate in Education and Career Planning
Students in the Education and Career Planning (EDCP) program will experience a transformative, applied learning experience in which they develop the skills to set realistic goals and create personal plans for future education and careers in a diverse and changing world.
The program welcomes adult learners at any stage of life who are engaged in a transition to explore career and educational opportunities. A strengths-based approach in a safe, supportive, and inclusive learning environment supports resilience, self-awareness, wellness, and personal leadership skills.
To inform their future goals and plans, learners identify, research, and critically analyze information on occupations and labour markets. They also explore and familiarize themselves with post-secondary education programming, pathways, services, and resources.
Learners develop communication and interpersonal skills in order to enhance their ability to interact effectively and respectfully with diverse individuals and groups. Learners conduct job searches and information interviews, participate in mock interviews, and develop career and educational networks. Coaching and hands-on learning activities in a variety of settings and contexts give learners the opportunity to practice and apply their skills while building self-confidence and independence. Graduates of the EDCP program are eligible for an elective credit towards the BC Adult Graduation Diploma. Flexible delivery options are available.
