Work at VCC
Learn more about yourself and the world of work through Career Access courses offering assistance in career and educational decision making.
These courses help students learn how to research occupations, adjust to the changing labour market, set realistic goals and conduct a successful job search. Career Access courses are ongoing and taught in a flexible format to suit the adult learner's schedule. They are operated through the Essential Skills Centre, located at the VCC Downtown Campus, Room 236.
For more information, phone 604.871.7000, ext. 8301 or 604.871.7000, ext. 7366
This program is tuition-free, however other fees (e.g. application fee, U-Pass fee) are still charged.
For assistance with these costs, ask VCC Financial Aid about the non-repayable Adult Upgrading Grant.
