• Why Choose BCIT ?

    WE ARE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER HIGH SCHOOLS
    BCIT helps students acquire the knowledge and skills they will need to be successful in the worlds of work and higher education.
    We are different in that we provide competency based education in twenty-nine (29) Career Majors which gives students an opportunity for advanced career placement with an employer at a higher rate of pay.
    In addition, students receive all the academic course work necessary to enter the college, university, or other post secondary institution of their choice.

    OUR STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN A CAREER MAJOR EXPLORATORY PROGRAM
    The Exploratory Program allows students to sample several Career Major areas and make an informed choice for their permanent career.
    Each new student will have four exploratory opportunities in Career Majors during the first semester of his or her initial year at BCIT. Students will select three career majors and will be assigned to one non-traditional Career major. They will spend about 10 days in each of the areas getting an overview of the career, practicing entry level skills, and learning what it takes to be successful in that Career Major.
    At the conclusion of the fourth exploratory cycle, the student, with the advice of his/her parent/guardian and Career Major instructor, will have the opportunity to select first and second permanent Career Major choices. Students are expected to complete this permanent Career Major Program.

    WE HAVE A JOB PLACEMENT/GUARANTEE PROGRAM
    The Burlington County Institute of Technology provides job placement services based upon students' interests, desires, aptitudes, and abilities. The focus is to assist in the placement of graduates into high quality employment in the occupations for which they have been trained.
    Job placement is a commitment that BCIT makes to business and industry. We offer high quality workers who have been appropriately trained in the attitudinal and technical skills required for success in the workplace. Proficiency profiles are completed on all graduates documenting their skill proficiencies in their Career Major. The Guarantee Program provides employers with assurance of the skills of prospective employees. These assurances are backed by a promise of no cost retraining at BCIT if the worker is deficient in skills promised by the proficiency profile.
