BC ABE Policy Work Update

With the change of government in BC over the summer of 2017, Federation of Post-Secondary Educators (FPSE) faculty delegates from around the province seized an opportunity to meet with BC Ministry of Advanced Education (AVED) officials in the fall of 2017 to provide input on policy for ABE/ELL programming in public post-secondary institutions. Then, in spring 2018, AVED announced the new Adult Education Policy Framework. It is posted here for reference. Also posted is Vancouver Community College Faculty Association’s (VCCFA) summary response to the new policy. It briefly outlines the initial key discussion points from the fall consultation, the corresponding Ministry action, and finally, issues requiring further action to ensure student access is secure.
