Adult Education Policy Framework

In April 2018 the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training in British Columbia, Canada, published their Adult Education Policy Framework.

The Framework includes key policies designed to enhance student access, success and transition from low literacy and high school completion to post-secondary education and employment training.

It is guided by the following policy objectives:

Accessible:
1) Domestic students in Adult Education programs have the supports needed to progress and complete their studies and transition to post-secondary education or employment.

Sustainable:
2) Adult Education courses and programs remain sustainable within public post-secondary institutions across the system.

Transferable:
3) Adult Education courses and programs provide consistent learning outcomes and recognition, allowing students to seamlessly transfer from one institution to another.

Accountable:
4) Students and public post-secondary institutions are committed to the completion of Adult Education programs, and transition to post-secondary studies, training and employment.
