Direct Education can help you meet the requirements for an Independent School as defined under the Independent Schools Act of British Columbia, navigate the multitude of child safety and best practices regulations and understand the intricacies of the BC Elementary and Secondary curriculum.
British Columbia allows schools in many parts of the world to operate as British Columbia Offshore Schools, teaching the BC curriculum outside of British Columbia and Canada.
Schools in countries other than Canada and register as BC Offshore schools if they meet the requirements of, and are inspected by, the British Columbia Ministry of Education.
Direct Education can guide you through the process of evaluating ministry requirements, bringing your proposal to the ministry, submitting the paperwork, and working your way through to the inspection stage.
Currently, BC Offshore Schools operate in such locales as China, France and Punjab, India.
