VCC, SQA sign agreement to give learners new transfer opportunities


Vancouver Community College and the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) have signed an agreement that will provide learners with access to international college degree programs. VCC will have access to SQA’s curriculum and will be able to offer expanded transfer opportunities for students interested in learning abroad. “One of the academic priorities in VCC’s Strategic Innovation Plan is to deliver sustainable programming and student services that align with the college’s institutional values, community, and the labour market demands,” said VCC VP of Administration and International Development Ian Humphreys. “This partnership with SQA aims to do exactly that: fast-track students into the labour market while also exposing them to job opportunities in Canada and abroad.”
