A wealth of Selkirk College community education and workplace training (CEWT) opportunities are currently arriving to mailboxes throughout the West Kootenay-Boundary region.
Creating educational experiences that inspire lifelong learning is an important part of the Selkirk College vision and the winter and spring calendar is a cornerstone of making it happen. There are hundreds of courses available in the 112-page booklet that includes offerings between January and July.
“There is so much going on at Selkirk College,” said CEWT Manager Gregg Neelin. “When you flip through the calendar, the scope and depth of the programming that we offer is amazing. I think some people might be surprised to see just how much is in there.”
From learning to make fused glass jewellery to occupational first aid to ballroom dancing, the winter and spring Calendar is thick with courses that appeal to a variety of interests.
Selkirk College works closely with local employers to ensure the workplace component of the course offerings match the skills required in today’s West Kootenay-Boundary economy.
Selkirk College has campuses and learning centres in Castlegar, the East Shore, Grand Forks, Kaslo, Nelson, Nakusp and Trail. With hundreds of community instructors offering their expertise, the course offerings are spread throughout the region and throughout the next seven months.
