2007/08 Annual Service Plan Report
Ministry of Advanced Education
Since receiving "Campus 2020 Thinking Ahead: The Report," the Ministry of Advanced Education and Labour Market Development has been reviewing its recommendations to improve post-secondary education in British Columbia. Several of these have been implemented, including: undertaking a review of student financial assistance and completing a review of the "Private Career Training Institutions Act." The Ministry has begun work on an Education Quality Assurance designation so students from around the world will recognize British Columbia (B.C.) as a destination for high quality, reputable and credible public and private post-secondary education. Many measures have been put in place to protect students, increase transparency, enhance education program quality, and strengthen accountability at B.C.'s private post-secondary institutions. By providing debt management, loan reductions, interest relief and loan forgiveness, the Ministry has assisted students with repayment so they may move forward on their chosen path. This report compares the actual results to the expected results identified in the Ministry's 2007/08--2009/10 Service Plan. To demonstrate the Ministry's approach to evaluating and implementing the 52 recommendations found in the "Campus 2020 Thinking Ahead: The Report," the highlights from 2007/08 have been organized according to the Report's vision for Access, Excellence, and Research and Innovation in post-secondary education. Contents include: (1) Message from the Minister and Accountability Statement; (2) Highlights of the Year; (3) Purpose of Ministry; (4) Strategic Context; (5) Report on Performance; (5) Report on Resources; and (6) Annual Service Plan. Appended are: (A) Ministry Contact Information; and (B) Hyperlinks to Additional Information.
