Welcome to Burnaby Community & Continuing Education


NEW STUDENTS – APPLY FOR DAYTIME WINTER CLASSES NOW


COVID-19 UPDATE – IN-CLASS INSTRUCTION FOR HIGH SCHOOL COMPLETION, FOUNDATIONS AND LINC CLASSES

Classes will all be blended for the upcoming Winter Semester, meaning that all classes will be a combination of online and in-person. Most of your lessons will be online while you will be placed into smaller learning groups for face-to-face instruction. These smaller learning groups allow us to maintain physical distancing guidelines as outlined by our Provincial Health Officer.

In accordance with our Provincial Health Officer’s recommendations, we require that students bring masks to school to wear in high traffic areas–hallways, the Main Office, etc–and that students be mindful of the 2 metre physical distancing guidelines that have been put forth.

Your first day of classes will be online; this will provide teachers the opportunity to connect with you and explain when you will first be allowed access to your classroom. Once you have been informed of the day you will be attending class, you may begin attending during your designated time slot.

We understand that these times have been stressful and challenging for everyone but we hope that the return of some in-class instruction will provide our students greater learning opportunities moving forward.

Certificate/Diploma programs and COVID:

We offer a variety of course formats; ‘in person’, ‘online’ and ‘blended’ versions. Each program is unique and will vary in terms of the format it is offered in. Please be sure we have your correct email address in case we have to contact you about any changes.

Online classes are regular program sessions and all the attendance policies outlined for in-person classes will equally apply. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all the equipment needed to attend classes online is functional. To be fully present and participating in the online sessions you will need a working camera, microphone, and audio system. Turning on your camera and being visually present in class is necessary. Students who join the online class while doing other unrelated activities (like shopping, baking or driving) will be asked to leave the session and return when they are ready to fully attend the class.
For classes that are held ‘in person’ facemasks are required in common areas such as the entrance, the hallway, the washroom. Once seated in the classroom facemasks are optional.
