Nicola Valley Institute of Technology (NVIT) is an Indigenous Public Post-Secondary Institute that is learner-centred and grounded in Indigenous culture, tradition, and knowledge.

As an Indigenous centre for excellence, NVIT empowers learners by strengthening voice and identity through education.

NVIT’s co-op program blends on-campus learning with practical applied learning, enhancing education with career-related work experience before graduation and takes work experience one step further by formally integrating a student’s academic studies with their work experience.

Students alternate study terms with paid, monitored work-terms in professional industry, non-profit, private business, and public sector organizations. At NVIT, students enter Co-op at various points in their education depending on program requirements and to achieve the Co-op designation, students must complete a minimum number of work terms in their certificate or diploma.
