What We Do
The British Columbia Career College Association supports consistency, accountability, and excellence in the private post-secondary training sector. To promote this vision, we co-ordinate and disseminate information on topics relevant to our members through seminars and meetings, as well as through our annual conference. The BCCCA acts as the communication and advocacy heart for our membership on all fronts related to government policy, post secondary education and training infrastructure, and the parity issues affecting institutions and students within the larger framework of post-secondary education in BC.
The provincial and federal governments know that the public education system, by itself, cannot accomodate the demand for education and training. The need for innovative, responsive, effective and cost efficient skills training increases with every year. It is critical to recognize that private career colleges are well positioned to build our country’s capacity for providing access to quality post-secondary education.
