VCC has been in existence since 1965, and presently offers more than 60 programs in developmental education, adult basic education, English language programs, special education, and programs in vocational, career, technical, academic and continuing education. A particular focus of the programs is in technology, trades, hospitality, tourism, and health professions. VCC is also British Columbia's largest provider of post-secondary adult basic education.
The college promotes practical work in many of its programs, and as such requires practicums with on-campus or local businesses. VCC has a high rate of student employment upon graduation, due in large part to this policy.
