Sprott Shaw College is a fully accredited and designated post-secondary institution and many of our programs qualify for ESS funding; however, every case is different. Sprott Shaw is able to tailor its current programs to fit student needs. It’s important to contact WorkBC before you start your program, so they can ensure you have the proper funding and to ensure you are eligible. Our programs start on a monthly basis, so you can start sooner and finish earlier. In addition, Sprott Shaw assists with job placement through its on-campus Employment Services Specialist for higher success upon graduation.
Sprott Shaw’s extensive history gives credibility and confidence to its students. With 16 campuses across the province, there is one in your community. Contact an Admissions Advisor to discuss your options and for assistance with applying for ESS funding.
