Committee Report - Spring 2021

March 21, 2021 10:30 AM | Andrew Skapenko (Administrator)

Please find below an overview of the projects completed in the first quarter of 2021.

BCPLAN Partner Recruitment Campaign

We have identified and will be reaching out to over 50 new potential partners to build relationships for further advancement of PLAR and BCPLAN in the province. Included with our introduction will be an infographic on PLAR and an invitation to upcoming events. 

Letter to the Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Training

Earlier in February, BC announced its plan on micro-credentials, launching a training program aimed at upgrading the existing and building new skills for workers in British Columbia. One other option to fast-track career development and re-skilling in BC can be PLAR. BCPLAN has prepared a Letter to the Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Training including an infographic. The package will be submitted to the Minister to spur further conversation on the benefits PLAR can bring during the economic recovery.  

Website

We refreshed our website and gave it a new look!  From webinars to a variety resources on PLAR, the new website now showcases a great collection of tools for PLAR practitioners and stakeholders. Please take a moment to explore www.bcplan.ca.  

Webinars

We have also launched a two-part webinar series on economic benefits of PLAR as well as its applications in Career Advancement. Please check the upcoming events for more details and to register.

Social Media

There has been nothing but a steady growth in our social media presence on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram. Follow us to stay current with news and recent developments in the world of PLAR. 

We thank the BC PLAN Board members for the active support and are looking forward to the upcoming projects, which we will share with you in the next report!
