Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. ~ Wiliam Butler Yeats

Partners in Education

Establishing community partnerships From its inception the GVES realized the value of partnerships...alliances that would result in collaboration, creativity, innovation and a new dimension to the spirit of the Brantford-Brant community through post secondary education. With an objective of increasing the intellectual capital of our local workforce, the GVES actively supports opportunities for expanded and integrated post secondary programming which generates distinct and unique partnerships.

The value of integrated programming has not been overlooked by the post secondary institutions in our community and, as a result, articulation agreements continue to be developed between Laurier University-Brantford, Nipissing University-Brantford and Mohawk College-Brantford. These articulation agreements enable students to simultaneously earn credits towards College and University degrees and diplomas.

The GVES continues to play an instrumental role in developing partnerships that will ultimately support projects vital to the continued growth of post secondary education in our communities. The vision will be constant...to build on a foundation of integrated college and university programs...the goal has evolved to an increased focus on workforce skills development, life long learning, and business and industry participation and integration into post secondary education.
