British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer

British Columbia offers multiple educational pathways to address the literacy and academic needs of its adult population. In BC, Adult Basic Education (ABE) is offered through two public systems: the secondary system offers the Adult Graduation program in various school district facilities, typically through Continuing Education, and the public post-secondary system makes ABE courses available through its network of institutions throughout the province. ABE courses are intended for adults who wish to attain their secondary diploma, to take extra secondary courses to find a better job, or to upgrade their secondary level courses to obtain the prerequisites necessary to move on to post-secondary studies. The British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT) partnered with the two education ministries (Ministry of Education and Ministry of Advanced Education and Labour Market Development) to conduct the first analysis of student-level data on adult basic education (ABE) students in the secondary and post-secondary systems. The study identifies the cohort of students enrolled in ABE in 2004/05 and then examines their education pathways prior to and after that year. The overall objective of the study is to improve their understanding of the number of students in both systems, similarities and differences between the student populations, the extent to which students move between systems, and their transition to further post-secondary studies. Two appendixes include: (1) ABE Student Mobility Committee Members; and (2) Detailed Tables. (Contains 7 footnotes, 13 tables, and 15 figures.)
