Training & Education

Do you lack the skills or certification necessary to find lasting employment as a result of a change in Labour Market conditions, a lack of marketable skills resulting in low-paying jobs, or a change in your circumstances due to a disability or medical condition?

You may be eligible to receive WorkBC Skills Enhancement Services including:

  • Competency-Based Training that allow you to learn and develop the knowledge and concrete skills needed to prepare for, find and maintain employment.
  • Training Services that provide education and certification via:
    • Short-Term Orientation and Certificate (STOC)
    • Adult Basic Education (ABE) and Academic Upgrading
    • Short Duration Training
    • Occupational Skills Training
    • Project Based Labour Market Training (PBLMT)

Note: Clients who start training prior to receiving approval from a WorkBC Centre, regardless of the date of their application, are ineligible for WorkBC Skills Enhancement Training Services Financial Supports.
