DigiBC’s Work Placement Office will work with creative tech employers and post-secondary institutions across the province to identify and advertise student opportunities within each cohort, and will help match students to meaningful work placements suiting their talents and interests. The program provides for 170 student work placements over four cohorts, beginning in September 2024.

 

Support For Students: Resources for Placement

 

Students enrolled in qualifying ACE-WIL post-secondary programs in BC are eligible to participate in the program, securing four- or eight-month placements at creative technology companies across the province.As a part of the program, students will get a head start on their creative tech careers thanks to customized orientation workshops, e-learning resources, mentoring support, and the opportunity to start building their own professional network in the industry.

The process of hiring students can be challenging. That’s why—as a part of this program—DigiBC’s Work Placement Office actively helps with recruiting, administration, and facilitating financial supports that subsidize qualifying placements.Creative technology employers who are a part of the Work Placement Pilot Program also receive proven resources to help with hiring, onboarding and managing student placements.
