Post-secondary funding continues to align with in-demand occupations
February 1, 2016
OPERATING grants to public post-secondary education institutions continue to be aligned with education and training for in-demand occupations, with an additional $90 million targeted in 2015-16.
Targeted operating grants for public post-secondary institutions in British Columbia now account for approximately 17% of total funding. The goal is to target 25% of operating grants by 2017-18 to education and training that supports in-demand occupations as part of the commitment made in B.C.’s Skills for Jobs Blueprint.
