Training system reforms proposed by Government

Information for BCITO apprentices.

What's all this in the media about polytechnics and ITOs changing?

The Minister of Education (Government) has released a proposal to reform the Vocational Education Training system (VET).

It’s a proposal only, and from 13 February there is a six week consultation period to get feedback from industry.

Does this affect my apprenticeship?

No, it is business as usual for you, and there is no change to how we support your apprenticeship.

The proposed changes will not affect your qualification.

How this proposal will change BCITO and what it does

The proposal is quite complex, so we’re currently working to understand the proposed changes and what they mean for BCITO.

We will keep you updated by email and on our social media channels as we get further information and understanding.

All apprentices and employers were sent an email from Warwick Quinn, our Chief Executive on 13 February.
