Focus Group on Post Secondary Resources with the Ministry of Advanced Education

Tuesday March 28, 7pm at Burnaby Mountain Secondary School.

The Ministry of Advanced Education is working to better understand the student journey from high school to post-secondary, and the resources and tools required to help student and their supports make this transition. One of these resources is EducationPlannerBC, an initiative to consolidate online post-secondary resources, enabling students to search for programs, compare admission and tuition requirements, and apply directly to the public post-secondary institution(s) of their choice through a common online application platform.

The Provincial Government’s Service Design team is visiting post-secondary institutions, high schools, counselling offices and parent advisory councils, conducting user research to validate assumptions and make recommendations for subsequent EducationPlannerBC development beyond 2017.

During the approximately 1 hour long PAC session, we will lead brainstorming exercises on your top areas of concern when talking with students about post-secondary, what resources you use to support your children and what might help make those conversations easier.
