Community Education is an alternative education model whereby NVIT delivers programming in First Nations communities throughout British Columbia and across Canada. This type of programming delivery provides students with an opportunity to learn in their own community and is often utilized by students who do not wish to move away from their community, or are currently employed. Programming options range from Adult Basic education and college readiness through to completion of two year diplomas. Whether you choose online, on campus, or in community, NVIT is committed to delivering quality education to Aboriginal learners.
