Trades programs: foundation & apprentice
BCIT has been actively involved with high school dual credit partnerships since the late 1990’s and annually has approximately 200 students in programs with school districts throughout the province.
Today, the dual credit model aligns with the provincial educational strategies of personalized learning and transition pathways from K-12 to post-secondary.
Dual credit programs allow students who have a keen interest in trades or technical programs to start their training in grade 11 or 12 and if they successfully complete a program earn a BCIT Trades credential, high school credits, and credits from the Industry Training Authority (ITA).
To learn more about trades dual credit programs and funding opportunities through the ITA, please visit ACE IT Youth Programs.
BCIT is expanding our partnerships to include more technology and technical programs to address the needs of students, industry, and the government. Initiatives include online delivery, laddering and articulation agreements, preferred entry, scholarships, and targeted events including our High School Educator’s Day.
