Welcome to the Division of Adult & Continuing Education
Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College
The Division of Adult and Continuing Education (ACE) provides learning opportunities for adult learners, including those who do not meet the minimum qualification for entry into CFBC. Thus, the Division offers a range of programmes designed to meet the needs of individuals who wish to improve their qualifications, update their skills, improve themselves, or retrain for a new line of work.
Both CXC CAPE and CSEC courses are scheduled, with CAPE students afforded the opportunity to pursue an associate degree or alternatively to take individual CAPE units. Although there are no entry requirements, do note that CAPE applicants are advised to sit the CSEC Principles of Accounts and Mathematics examinations before taking the related CAPE courses. ACE students who complete their CAPE programme qualify for graduation.
ACE Classes are conveniently scheduled in the evenings (5 pm to 9 pm) or on Saturdays. Lecturers, of course, work with and through the difficulties that inevitably arise when students are working adults with homes and families. Consequently, ACE CSEC and CAPE students meet success when they keep their goals in mind and so persevere and work diligently in spite of their circumstances.
Additionally, ACE short courses are offered in a variety of areas and can be scheduled for a mere 4 hours or may be scheduled for 48 hours. Some courses, for instance Baking, English for Speakers of Other Languages and Computer for Seniors are offered every semester, while others are offered based on demand. However, there is always something to cater to everyone’s interests and in the case of Seniors, ACE offers classes that cross traditional academic boundaries to include recreational activities.
If you are an adult who wish to upgrade your credentials and skills or if you are simply looking for an engaging way to occupy your time, do explore the options offered in ACE.
