March is here, and Spring is just around the corner. Doesn’t seeing nature awaken all around you make you want to try out new things and plan for the future? That’s great, because it’s career and trades month at SCIDES, and we want to show you how you can earn credit for your post-secondary education while you’re finishing up high school.
At SCIDES, we have some great options for adults looking to graduate or upgrade.
As we had announced in an earlier post and on our Facebook page, the rules for adult upgrading in British Columbia have changed. Up until now, graduated adults were able to upgrade their grades and other prerequisites for college or work at no charge. Unfortunately, the funding has run out, and there are new rules we have to follow.
Starting now, all graduates adults must pay $550 per program for upgrading courses.
If you have graduated, and are looking to upgrade, we do have a few options for you:
- All graduates of School District #58 will receive a discount.
- If you take and complete one of our Literacy Foundations Skill Building courses, you will also receive a discount on your upgrading classes.
If you have not graduated and are over 19 years of age, you can still take all necessary courses and graduate without any fees! Please get in touch with us if you have any questions at all - we are happy to help and we look forward to connecting with you!
Can you believe it's April already?! Time sure flies when you're having fun - and we are having fun! We want to share some updates with you today, and we'd love to hear what you think about it; of course we hope to have your support. You can leave a comment below, or connect with us on our Facebook page. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
A new year has begun and we think it's the perfect time to set some educational goals - and of course we're here to help you stay on track!
We all know how it goes with resolutions, right? Within a few weeks of enthusiastically plunging into the new year, determined to make it this time, four out of five people get so stressed out about sticking to their plan that giving up seems to be the best option.
We pride ourselves to be the best solution for adult learners, and on this week's blog post we want to tell you a bit about what we have to offer if you are looking to graduate or upgrade.
SCIDES is a free resource to all BC learners, regardless of age. All classes are free if you have not graduated, and even after graduation a selection of classes is free for upgrading!
Here's what you can expect from us if you are an adult learner:
