Many students feel pressured to pursue post-secondary education but often have no idea where to start. Counselors may find keeping track of deadlines and details for post-secondary institutions equally overwhelming. The good news is that planning for post-secondary education and applying to BC public universities and colleges has gotten easier thanks to the BC government funded website EducationPlannerBC.ca!
EducationPlannerBC uses clear language and formatting so you no longer need to get lost on each institutions’ website to find the information you need. Delete your bookmarks and ditch the university calendars as we have gathered the information online for you!
In our workshop you will learn how to: find programs related to students’ interests or career aspirations; view admission requirements; access links to scholarships & bursaries; find budgeting tools; and know where to turn to for help with applications. Our workshop will focus on resources you can share with students and parents, or even build into your CLC/CLE curriculum.
Transition into the world of 21st century post-secondary planning and join us for this fun and informative workshop. We will leave time for questions and discussion.
