This project on work and learning opportunities in New Brunswick was born out of a perception within the provincial government, and among post-secondary institutions and employers from the public and private sectors, that more needs to be done to foster a better learning environment for post-secondary students and for retaining highly qualified high school and post-secondary graduates in the province. The main objective of this research project was to identify the perceived barriers associated with post-secondary participation in work and learning opportunities in the province and to provide recommendations for improving program participation and impact.
Data for this project was collected through on-line surveys completed by both post-secondary students and employers throughout the province and through interviews and focus groups conducted with key informants. This report describes the methodology used, along with the main findings and conclusions that were drawn from the results.
