The Industry Training Authority of BC (ITA) have identified that the current apprenticeship structure is not meeting the needs of all apprentices and employers. The ITA, in collaboration with post-secondary trades training providers, industry, secondary school districts, and new media and e-learning companies, has developed a strategy and business plan to implement a flexible learning initiative. The formation of partnership organizations to leverage the expertise of public and private trades training providers and BC’s new media and e-learning community is utilized to design, develop and implement system-wide, provincial flexible learning mode solutions for delivering training to apprentices that allow them to complete their technical training with less disruption. This session will provide a summary of the development of the initiative, a brief overview of flexible delivery models of three E-PPRENTICE programs in development, and a brief report of the current status of the initiative.
