We’re writing to you on behalf of the Working Group on the Current State of the Education Assistant (EA) Workforce in B.C. (the EA working group). CUPE and the Ministry of Education formed the EA working group in May 2021 to gather information and data to better understand the current state of the EA workforce and potential implications of standardized certification.
As such, the working group has developed a survey that includes questions on the current education, work experience, and career aspirations of EAs. Survey results will be used to inform the work of the group and help them better understand the needs, issues, opportunities, and challenges of the EA workforce.
Here is the link to the survey: https://www.bcedextranet.gov.bc.ca/educ_forms_service/cupe-survey.html
Survey closes on January 14, 2022.
Thank you for your responses – we appreciate your time and feedback.
