Website: www.ufv.ca/ce

Learning and access to learning is important to all Canadian adults. An individual can expect to change careers or career direction at least three times within his/her working life. This will require the ability to constantly acquire new knowledge and skills. The Access and Continuing Education division endeavours to meet these lifelong learning needs of adults using traditional as well as innovative delivery methods. Delivery methods such as computer-mediated instruction, onsite training, and contract training options are currently being used in the Access and Continuing Education division. Innovative methods of assessment such as laddering and PLAR (Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition) are also used throughout the division’s programs.

The division also tries to alleviate the barriers to access to learning opportunities faced by new Canadians through the English as a Second Language department, and by people needing high school completion and upgrading to continue with their post-secondary education goals through the College and Career Preparation department.
