OVERVIEW OF COMMUNITY EDUCATION

The Community Education and Development Programme is one of the gems of the Department of Community and Cultural Affairs.  This programme provides a wide range of courses on a non-credit basis, available across our island, to capture and stimulate the interest of our residents.  Community Education is a process that concerns itself with the well-being of our citizens.  It is a life-long learning process to create awareness, identifies needs, concerns and challenges of the community toward providing assistance in the development of programmes, initiatives, facilities, staff and leadership toward the end of improving the entire community.  The courses offered are designed for learners of all ages, from children to seniors.
