BC PLAN is a network of like minded organizations and individuals, who have come together from across the province to charter a communication network.
Together we promote increased access to post secondary credentials and skilled employment through the informed recognition of the skills and knowledge adults bring to post secondary institutions, to business, and to industries across the province.
PLA resources allows students to earn credit toward a course or program offered by a post-secondary institution if they can demonstrate, through a systematic and valid assessment process, that the learning is equivalent to that which normally would be acquired through conventional study at the post-secondary level.
Join the Conference Board of Canada on February 19, 2016 at 02:00 PM EST for this 60 minute webinar as they evaluate the state of Canadian learning recognition since the publication of the first Brain Gain study in 2001.
Our Network – Our network includes representatives from post secondary institutions, provincial government, sector councils, and individuals working with adult learners in the public, private and voluntary sectors. Members are excited about the potential for growth of innovative PLAR partnerships in British Columbia and about the potential for a strong provincial network to encourage and support increased activity.
