    Career Possibilities

    The educational sector in Canada is set to grow, especially at the leadership level. As an aging workforce sees top level employees leaving in greater numbers, you can expect between 2000 and 3000 high level openings in this area in the next ten years in British Columbia alone. Needless to say, demand for highly skilled, experienced professionals will skyrocket. Possible roles include that of program officer, consultant, education policy researcher, school administrator, district administrator and more.
