ANGUILLA–After successfully launching the new academic year with the orientation and registration of another large intake of students in its Online Degree programmes, the University of the West Indies (UWI) Open Campus Anguilla is now concentrating on the delivery of its local face-to-face Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) programmes.
These workforce and professional skill-development programmes include popular courses like Supervisory Management and Advanced Supervisory Management with Aunika Webster-Lake, Foundation Mathematics I and II with Darwin Hazell and Conversational Spanish at the Introductory and Advanced levels with Colin Johnson. Other courses being offered include Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management, Finance for Non-Financial Managers, Introduction to Counselling, Law for Human Resource Practitioners (Employment Law), Occupational Health and Safety, Family Law, Introduction to Human Resource Management, Customer Care, Computer Literacy, Creative Writing, Business Writing and Communication; and Digital and Brand Management.
This semester there is a new course, the Certificate in Early Childhood Education Care and Development programme for early childhood/day care providers, coordinated by Ellenita Harrigan; and the Certificate in Protocol and Soft Diplomacy Skills with Rosena Brooks. The 2018-2019 academic year will also see the introduction of the University’s Care for the Elderly programme.
“We are pleased with the continued interest in and the growth of our local CPE programmes,” said Manager for the UWI Open Campus British Overseas Territories, Dr. Phyllis Fleming-Banks. “While the majority of our students are registered in our online programmes, the locally-delivered, professional development programmes are also an important part of our mandate. Accordingly, we continue to partner with our local stakeholders to meet these needs of the community.”
Some 90 participants in the University’s 2017-2018 CPE programmes were recognised at the annual Certificate Presentation Ceremony on July 26, and the UWI Open Campus Anguilla Team is anticipating another exciting and rewarding year.
