DigiBC has partnered with Vancouver Community College, Centre for Digital Media, BCIT, and Emily Carr University of Art and Design on post-secondary micro-credential programs for the creative technology sector.

Our milestone report, Benchmarking the Creative Technology Ecosystem in British Columbia, highlighted that although the creative technology sector in BC is among the fastest growing and well paying, a shortage of talent remains a key challenge for companies. The micro-credential programs we are supporting will create a bridge between the creative technology industry and British Columbians looking to upskill or reskill and take advantage of the opportunities in the sector.

“Micro-credentials offer novel opportunities for people to pursue a career in this dynamic sector — from recent grads looking to develop specialized skills, to workers reskilling from adjacent industries, to existing creative tech staffers upskilling for career advancement. This collaboration between government, industry and post-secondary institutions is a first for our sector, and will allow these programs to stay current with the industry needs and technology shifts that will support job growth and the changing demands of this expanding workforce.” – Loc Dao, Executive Director, DigiBC
