For over 20 years Amber Education Services Ltd has delivered services in the workforce development industry. We started out providing Entrepreneurship programs, branched into tourism, co-managed a resource centre and then in 2002, refocused our activities to take on the Community Coordinator contract for the Skill Development Employment Benefit. Over that time we had 3 offices serving Victoria through to Parksville and a staff upwards of 25.
In the Employment Program of BC we have evolved to become a subcontractor, offering our expertise in specific areas of program delivery. Today, we offer three main services to agencies that are contracted and/or subcontracted in the EPBC.
Skills Training and Supplemental Services
AES has taken its decade of experience in training fund delivery and created differing levels of service to assist WorkBC ESCs with this program. Our Representatives are experts in related policy, understand risk mitigation and ease the workload of case managers to ensure that training clients are well served. Our models can be applied to training funds for EI attached individuals as well as JCP participants and BCEA clients. For example, we have created an information video for EI attached clients to view prior to continuing ESC meetings.
For more information take a look at our Financial Support for Training video and read over the accompanying document.
Reaching back to our origins, Amber began delivery of the SE program in May of 2013. In this program, we combine our experience as well as the first hand knowledge of being self employed so that participants not only gain the technical information, but can discuss real time issues with someone who relates to the practical and psychological challenges of self employment. We have created and deliver the orientation session, numerous workshops on small business topics, provide ongoing coaching and mentoring to participants, and are responsible for the complete program implementation in the ICM system.

Non Case Managed Apprenticeship Services
Saving you time and money while delivering a quality service are the keys to consider having Amber Education assist in this segment of the EPBC. In recent years, we have developed processes to effectively work with applicants who apply for NCMA supports. This can relieve the challenge of providing the service internally if it is adding to the desk of your management and staff. Briefly we:
Offer a toll free number, a hotline as such for apprentices
Monitor the Client Portal for new applications
Liaise with apprentices to resolve issue with their applications
Process apprentice applications from confirmed attendance to training completion
Ensure eligible supports are paid and service fees are achieved according to EPBC policy
