BCGEU Professional Development Funds

The intent of the BCGEU Professional Development Funds is to encourage and support employees to access learning activities that will enhance current job performance as well as to support skill development that may open up other career opportunities for transfer and promotion throughout the University.

There are two (2) Professional Development Funds available to eligible BCGEU employees:

  • BCGEU Support Staff General Professional Development Fund, and
  • BCGEU Support Staff Enhanced Professional Development Fund

For both of these funds, applications are approved on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to the availability of the overall budgeted funding for the fiscal year.

Employees may apply to both funds dependent on their PD activity. Approval from one fund does not guarantee approval from the other fund.
