Have your say in post-secondary education

Trail residents interested in the post-secondary education system are invited to submit their comments at a new BC Job Plans website.

Now is the time to voice your opinion on higher education.

The Ministry of Advanced Education is collecting people’s ideas on how to enhance “quality assurance” at B.C.’s public and private universities, colleges and institutes.

As part of the BC Jobs Plan announced in September 2011, the province is asking ‘What does a high quality post-secondary education mean to you and how will you know you received one?’

Students, parents, employers and others with interest or experience in the post-secondary system are encouraged to visit the BC Jobs Plan website at http://engage.bcjobsplan.ca.

Experiences and comments, along with input from post-secondary institutions and stakeholders, are to be used to inform and improve the existing system.

The project was predicated by record numbers of domestic and international students. It was the diversification in post-secondary education and increased internationalization of the sector that quality assurance processes needed to be adapted and reinforced.
