LEARNING RESOURCES

With a variety of resources available at no cost through Open School BC and LearnNowBC, parents can help keep their children engaged in learning. Our learning process consists of numerous improvements which can benefit your children. Our goal is to help them receive the best education our state and school can provide. Over the years, we have improved our teaching programs, so now offer a lot of teaching materials and teaching methods.

While the resources are not a substitute for the learning that occurs through our schools, they provide some opportunities for students to learn at home. With the improved version of teaching materials, students now have an opportunity to learn at home. It is especially beneficial for students who have some disabilities. Our courses all them to gather knowledge, without attending the school regularly. For the most successful student and for those who want to challenge their knowledge, we have prepared various certificates.

Students may also want to consider taking First Aid certification, Foodsafe Level 1 or other recognized certificates.
