Planning 10 Careers and Education Post Secondary Education & Training Information By the end of this presentation you will be able to: Tell the difference between a certificate, diploma and a degree. Describe 4 different types of

degrees. Describe what is apprenticeship Definitions Academic Programs lead to degrees in either general or applied studies at a university, university college or institute. Vocational, career and technical programs lead to certificates or diplomas at universities, university colleges, colleges or institutions. These applied programs

teach specific skills for specific jobs. Definitions Apprenticeship is a trade program that leads to certification in a designated trade and allows you to earn $ while you learn. Entry Level Trades Training (ELTT) programs are offered by colleges and institutes and usually lead to certificate or diploma. They provide students with basic theoretical and practical knowledge in various trades, whether as pre-employment or pre-apprenticeship training.

Most programs involve formal, institution-based instruction lasting 3 to 12 months. Various programs are offered through the post-secondary training system (e.g. automotive, carpenter, electrician). Colleges The colleges in BC are:

Camosun Capilano College of New Caledonia College of the Rockies Douglas Langara North Island Northern Lights

Northwest Community College Royal Military College of Canada Selkirk College Surrey College Vancouver Community College Colleges These institutions offer a wide variety of academic, career, upgrading, technical and vocational programs. The credentials offered are two years or less (for

the most part). In notable exceptions, some of these institutions have entered into agreements with degree granting institutions to enable their students to complete a degree on site. Myth Students in Colleges have less ability to transfer to university than students in universities. Students in both colleges and universities

typically are able to transfer up to two years of course work towards a university degree program. Institutes The 5 Institutes in BC are: BCIT (British Columbia Institute of Technology) Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design (ECIAD) Institute of Indigenous Government (IIG) (As of 2007 is part of the NVIT) Justice Institute of BC (JIBC) Nicola Valley Institute of Technology (NVIT) Pacific Marine Training Campus of BCIT Vancouver Film School

BCIT Offers a huge range of certificate, diplomas and degrees focused on areas such as: Business Media

Information technology Engineering Health Sciences Trades ECIAD Offers undergraduate degrees in:

Design Fine Arts Media Arts Masters Degree of Applied Arts *** JIBC Offers professional training through nine academies and divisions in areas such as:

Corrections Emergency Management Fire and Safety Paramedic Police. It has recently introduced its first degree (Bachelor of Fire and Safety Studies) NVIT and IIG

Both of these institutes have an aboriginal focus. Program offerings typically cover academic, preparatory and career programs up to two years. Several programs offer university transfer opportunities. NVIT offers a Bachelor of Social Work Degree through a partnership with Thompson Rivers University. Myth

Courses at BCIT do not transfer to other colleges and universities in the province. Many BCIT courses transfer. Students should check the BC transfer Guide to see for themselves. Universities The universities in BC are:

The University of British Columbia (UBC Vancouver and Okanagan) University of Northern British

Columbia Simon Fraser University (Burnaby, Vancouver, Surrey) University of Victoria Royal Roads University (Victoria) Only does Masters degrees Thompson Rivers University (Kamloops) Trinity Western University Quest University Canada (Squamish) With the exception of Thompson Rivers, these

institutions are best known for delivering a wide range of undergraduate degree programs. They also offer a number of professional certificate and diploma programs. In addition UBC, SFU, UVic and UNBC are the only post secondary institutions

in BC that offer Doctor or Philosophy (PhD) programs. Myth UBCs campus in North Kelowna (UBC Okanagan) is not fully affiliated with UBC Vancouver. Students who attend UBC Okanagan do not receive the same credential as those who attend in Vancouver.

University Colleges The three in BC are: Kwantlen Polytechnic University Vancouver Island University University of the Fraser Valley (Abbotsford and Chilliwack) University Colleges

University Colleges offer the same range of programs as colleges do, (i.e. academic, career, developmental, technical and vocational). HOWEVER, they also offer some undergraduate degree programs. Myth Students who complete their studies

at a university-college will be looked on less favorably than university grads in the job market or will be at a disadvantage when applying for graduate studies. Apprenticeship Mandatory technical training which an apprentice must take in order to achieve British Columbia Trade Qualification status. This training is offered by colleges, university colleges and institutes.

Apprenticeship It is a 2-4 year program of on the job training supplemented by in-school instruction lasting from 4 to 10 weeks per year, depending on the trade. Apprenticeship Students must be employed in a trade area and become registered through their employer in order to be eligible for this type of training. The process of becoming enrolled as a formal

apprentice is called the indentureship process. Once indentured, an apprentice can expect to earn 50% of a journeypersons wage, with yearly incremental increases over the duration of the apprenticeship term. Apprenticeship You can become an apprentice while still in high school through the Secondary School Apprenticeship Program and earn up to 16 credits.

The Red Seal program allows qualified tradespersons to practice their trade in any province or territory in Canada where the trade is required to have certified workers, without having to write further examinations. To date, there are 50 trades included in the Red Seal Program on a national basis. Degree #1 Associate Degree:

There are two types of Associate degrees: the Associate of Arts degree and the Associate of Science. To earn an Associate degree, a student must complete 60 semester credits in a clearly defined program of first and second year university transfer courses. These are awarded by colleges, university colleges and institutions. Degree #2 Bachelors Degree Bachelors degree programs normally take

four years of full-time study to complete. Many offer options in particular disciplines as well as more specialized honours option. These are awarded by university colleges, institutes and universities. Degree #3 Masters Degree: This degree usually involves one or more years of advance study that requires a written thesis based on research. Students studying for a masters degree are referred

to as graduate students. Degree #4 Doctor of Philosophy (PhD): This is the highest university degree and can be earned in most fields of study.
