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. Community Access 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 Community Access. Innovative methods of assessment such as laddering and PLAR (Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition) are also used throughout the divisions programs.
The division also tries to alleviate the barriers to access to learning opportunities faced by people needing high school completion and upgrading to continue with their post-secondary education goals, through the College and Career Preparation department.
The Continuing Education program includes courses in many subject areas which in the past were known as adult education or night-school. Continuing Education courses are offered at UCFVs three campuses, in many other locations around Chilliwack, Abbotsford, and Mission, and in community facilities in Hope and Agassiz. The courses are offered on a short-term or part-time basis during evenings, daytime hours, and weekends. Other offerings include certificate programs, employment training, contract training, and community and cultural events. Follow this link for details.
