At Q College, our students have many financial assistance options. As a Designated College under the B.C. Private Training Institutions Branch, our students are eligible for a variety of funding options.
It always helpful to talk to a financial representative at our college to let you know about all available financing options to figure out what would work best for you and your needs. Feel free to call (250) 298-5059 or Toll Free: 1-866-702-5278 and book an appointment for a free consultation.
Additional options include:
Interest-Free Student Payment Plan for 3 months or Acceleralted Programs Only
Q College students who have made the initial 30% deposit to hold their seat may pay an extra administration fee of $150.00 to make monthly payments for the balance of their tuition. Q College will extend payments over the length of the program subject to the applicant being approved by admissions. Post-dated cheques and/or credit card preauthorization forms are required for this option.
Employment Insurance(EI) Funded Training
Educational funding may be available for qualified applicants who are either currently collecting EI, have collected regular EI benefits in the past three years, or have collected maternity/paternity EI benefits in the past five years. Generally, the first step is to contact your EI officer who can refer you to your local employment service centre, such as GT Hiring Solutions, WorkLink or Amber Education.
Q College has had great success with assisting our students with funding approval through Amber Education. Our administration team is very familiar with the process and application forms to apply for EI retraining funding, and are happy to assist any student in what can sometimes be a difficult process.
B.C. Employer Training Grant (ETG)
The B.C. Employer Training Grant (ETG) supports skills training to address provincial labour market needs. The program is delivered by the Province of British Columbia and is funded by the Government of Canada through the Workforce Development Agreement (WDA).
The Province strives to build a strong, sustainable, innovative economy with a focus on reducing poverty and inequality. We are working to create good-paying jobs for British Columbians while ensuring people from every background can reach their full potential.
Jobs continue to change and evolve. For example, some will become more complicated because of innovation and changes in technology. Many workers across the province will likely be affected by automation in some way. Some jobs will involve tasks that are not yet invented.
As a result, it will be key for those in the labour force to adapt to changing job requirements and to learn new skills and competencies. Employers need to play a critical role in providing opportunities for people to do this.
The goal of the ETG is to help British Columbians access the skills training they need to adapt to the changing requirements of jobs and the labour market while encouraging employer involvement in the training of their employees.
Employers are eligible to receive up to $300,000 per fiscal year (April 1 – March 31). Participants are not to pay for training or any training-related expenses. All costs are to be paid for in full by the employer. Receipts must verify this information.
