Of the nearly one million job openings expected by 2024 in B.C., 8 out of 10 will require post-secondary education. B.C.’s Skills for Jobs Blueprint: Re-engineering Education and Training helps align training and education with in-demand jobs.
A key goal of B.C.’s Skills for Jobs Blueprint is to make sure that British Columbians have a seamless plan that takes them from high school through post-secondary education and right into the workforce. We also need to provide more support to those who are struggling to gain a foothold in the job market or who face unique challenges - such as youth-at-risk, persons with disabilities and aboriginal youth.

B.C.’s Blueprint: Re-engineering education and training is built on three key objectives:
If you’re in elementary, middle or high school, we want to give you an earlier head-start to hands-on learning so you’re ready for the workforce or more advanced training when you graduate.
If you’re in a college, university or institute, or are thinking about attending, we’re matching training with jobs in demand, and maximizing the spaces available to provide the programs you need to compete successfully in the workforce.
If you’re looking to move into or up in the workplace, we’re building stronger partnerships with industry and labour to better connect you with the on the- job and classroom training you’ll need to boost your skills or achieve certification.
