Articulation Committee Support

Articulation season is in full swing! BCCAT is here to help committees as they meet to do the important work of connecting, sharing, and working together to advance transfer pathways for BC post-secondary students. BCCAT staff members look forward to meeting with discipline groups, sharing sector information and hearing your discussions. Check out the Articulation section of the BCCAT website for details, including meeting dates, contacts, and resources, including an Orientation Guide for New Members, and the Spring Update. 

The ESL Articulation Committee

The English as a Second Language Committee is a highly motivated and successful committee, having undertaken two recent Transfer Innovation Projects. Currently, they are updating the EAP (English for Academic Purposes) outcomes in the ESL Articulation Guide (found here) to provide a clearer and more accurate set of outcomes for the many EAP programs across the province. This project is being spearheaded by three committee representatives. It is expected that this project will be finalized over summer 2018.


  • Engineering First Year Core Curriculum (Implementation):

    The Tourism/Hospitality Articulation Committee is overseeing the development of its own set of program core learning outcomes, to improve transferability between programs for students.
  • Adult Education Learning Outcomes and Course Transfer:
    The Adult Education Articulation Committee recently launched a project focused on identifying core competencies and learning outcomes for facilitation and instructional skills in higher and adult education contexts, and on identifying and increasing the visibility of the existing transfer pathways.
