Learning is more than just reading a book or memorizing facts. It’s about understanding the world around you and being able to apply that knowledge in different contexts.
That’s why an education assistant program is so important: it gives students the experience required for them to adapt their education to meet their future goals.
But before you can become an education assistant (EA) yourself, there are some things you’ll need to learn first, including how the application process works!
We’ve put together this brief guide on how to apply for Phase 2 of the Education Assistant Program so that any student interested in applying can find everything they need here on our blog post today.
How To Apply For Education Assistant Phase 2 Online
Great news! Phase 2 of the Education Assistant (EA) program is open to all British Columbia residents. Application process for Phase 2 is open from May 22, 2022 to July 31, 2022. The application process remains open for both new and returning applicants.
Phase 2 consists of:

- A competency evaluation
You can register for the exams through Admission BC’s website here: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/education-training/k12/programs-and-courses#secondary
How can I apply?
The application is available online. You can print the application and send it to the ministry of education by post, or you can fax or hand deliver it to the ministry of education.
How do I submit my Phase 2 Education Assistant Application?
You will need to complete an online application for Phase 2. You may also be required to provide supporting documentation and/or complete an interview with your principal/supervisor if necessary.
How do I create an account?
To register for Education Assistant Phase 2, you will need a BCeID. If you don’t have one, visit the BCeID website to create an account for yourself.
Once your account is ready, return to the education assistant registration website and click “Create Account” in the upper-right corner of your screen.
What do I write for “First Name” and “Last Name”?
You should write your full name as it appears on your birth certificate, passport or driver’s license. If you don’t know what that is, ask someone who knows you well enough to identify you in person (a family member or friend) and have them email us at *email@example.com*.
If you aren’t sure what your name is and don’t have access to any sort of official documentation, just enter something that sounds similar to what you think might be right. For example: John Doe
What if I don’t have my Social Insurance Number (SIN) or Work Permit number?
If you don’t have your SIN, Work Permit number or passport number:
- Provide your BCeID. If you do not have one, follow the instructions on how to create one in the “Getting Started” section of this page.
- Provide your birth certificate number (this is different from a passport). You can find this information by contacting Service Canada at 1-800-206-7218.
- Provide your driver’s license number (this is different from a passport). You can find this information by contacting Service Canada at 1-800-206-7218.
- Provide your student number (if applicable) and/or insurance card number
Why do I need to supply my email address?
The email address you submit will be used to notify you of:
- Your results. You’ll receive an email as soon as your application is approved, which may take up to four weeks. If there’s a problem with your application or we need more information from you, we will contact you via this address.
- Opportunities for work placements and trainee roles within local authorities and schools. These are offered on an annual basis so we recommend keeping an eye out for these emails in the future if you’re interested in applying for one of these positions in 2020 or 2021!
What is a BCeID?
A BCeID is a unique identifier that you can use to access government services online. It’s a secure way to verify your identity, so you don’t need to remember multiple usernames and passwords for various government agencies.
You can get one by visiting a Service BC centre. Visit the Service BC website for more information about getting your first BCeID or replacing it if it gets lost or stolen.
How do I know if my application was successful?
- When you apply, you will receive a confirmation email.
- You can check the status of your application on the BCeID website by clicking on “Verify your application” under the Applications section of My Services.
- You can also check the status of your application by logging into your BCeID account and clicking on “Verify your application” under Application Status in the Personalized Page section (you must have set up access to this feature).
