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 department offers a wide range of courses and programs from personal development to professional
training and upgrading as well as special events and public forums. Continuing Education courses are offered at UCFV’s 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.
UCFV aspires to serve residents of all ages and in all parts of the community, and therefore looks to local groups and individuals for course ideas and for assistance in program planning. It cooperates with community agencies in organizing co-sponsored courses and events, and encourages participation by interested individuals and community groups.
Continuing Education issues program booklets twice each year, before the beginning of each semester in September and January. The booklets are delivered free to every household in the UCFV region. They list and describe all the full- and part-time Continuing Education courses offered by UCFV, and contain all the information necessary for you to enrol.
The Continuing Education department has an extensive instructional program, offering non-credit courses in many employment-related fields. During the 2000/01 academic year, Continuing Education offered more than 1,000 classes, workshops and seminars for a total of more than 13,000 registrations. Follow this link for details.
