Updated Resource for Funding for Trades Education & Career Advancement

BCCWITT has reorganized the “FUNDING, SCHOLARSHIPS, & BURSARIES” drop down on our Resources page. We are now listing general resources like tax credits in the main content of that drop down, and have shifted the details for scholarships and bursaries to a spreadsheet so that it’s easier to search and update.

 You can access the most recent version of the funding spreadsheet here. Please share!
