Together we can grow
We are at a critical moment in New Brunswick. As our population ages, people will leave the workforce in unprecedented numbers over the next decade. Automation and technological disruption are changing the way we work and demanding new skills to compete and succeed. With a post-secondary education attainment rate that lags the rest of Canada, New Brunswick workers are particularly vulnerable to this upheaval.
These are the challenges today; but they don’t have to define tomorrow.
We can put New Brunswick on a road to growth, and post-secondary education is the vehicle that ensures we travel that road together. We believe every New Brunswicker should have the opportunity to develop the skills to fully participate in meaningful work and that our businesses should have access to the teams and talent they need to grow and compete here at home and around the world.
We believe this is possible. But to achieve it we need to do three things:
Accelerate skills development to create faster, more flexible opportunities that respond to the needs of learners and employers.
Innovate educational delivery through the use of new tools, technology and spaces.
Reach unprecedented numbers of New Brunswickers by tearing down barriers and meeting people where they are.
Enhancing the social and economic prosperity of our province is NBCC’s purpose. We do this by providing opportunities for people to achieve their potential as skilled, in-demand workers. Our staff, faculty and partners are ready.
We have the plan, ambition and record of success. Now we need you.
I invite you to join us. Together, we can grow New Brunswick.
Together, we can Go Beyond.
