BC invests $1.26M in ECE training

January 27, 2021
The Government of British Columbia is investing $1.26M in early childhood educator (ECE) training at public postsecondary institutions. Funding will enable BC to add 108 ECE seats, most of which will be delivered through a work-integrated learning approach, which will give students the opportunity to gain experience in the field as they complete their training. Students can also take classes in-person or online in a traditional model, and gain both theoretical and practicum experience. Programs are planned at Camosun College, Capilano University, Nicola Valley Institute of Technology, Northern Lights College, and Selkirk College. BC has also invested about $16M in student bursaries. BC (BC)
