More Life-long Learning Courses — $26.2 million

  • Investing $26.2 million in programs that allow Nova Scotians to upgrade their skills and develop professionally.
  • Adding 6,000 seats at the NSCC in short courses, micro-credentials, boot camps, badges, licenses, and certifications.
  • Doubling the number of seats in sector-specific preparatory programming and English language training.

Nova Scotians are seeking opportunities to upgrade their skills and develop professionally, as life-long learning becomes increasingly valuable for workers in an economy in transition. Every Nova Scotian deserves the chance to pursue additional training.

A Rankin government will add 6000 new seats at the NSCC in short courses, micro-credentials, boot camps, badges, licenses, and certifications. This significant increase from the current 4000 will give more Nova Scotians access to life-long learning opportunities each year.

We also know that many Nova Scotians face systemic barriers to education and employment. A Liberal government will double the number of seats in sector-specific preparatory programming and English language training, increasing the number of students able to access further education to 1,000 each year.
