Bachelor of Education in Trades & Technology

The Bachelor of Education in Trades & Technology (BETT) is a two-phase program that prepares students to be certified by the BC Ministry of Education, Teacher Certification Branch (TCB) to teach in BC secondary school settings.

Completion of Phase I of the BETT program will enable you to apply for a Trades Certificate teaching credential which qualifies you to teach Technology Education courses in BC high schools related to your specific trade qualification and experience.

The optional Phase II combines your Phase I studies, Prior Learning and Recognition credits, and further academic studies in a variety of courses to provide the required 150 credits for a full Bachelor of Education in Trades & Technology and the opportunity to apply for a Professional Certificate teaching credential, qualifying you to teach both Technology Education and Academic courses in the BC school curriculum.
