Life-Long LearningWhether you looking to upgrade your basic education, develop professional skills, learn a new skill, or simply take a short course for personal enjoyment, PEI offers a variety of choices.
A variety of upgrading opportunities are available in PEI for adults wanting to complete high school credits, prepare to write their General Educational Development (GED) tests (equivalent to high school), or to upgrade their grades in order to enter a post-secondary or skill-training program. Courses are offered across the province and programs allow learners to progress at their own pace. Learners can start at any time of year and attend during the day or evening on a full-time or part-time basis.
Professional Skills and Short Courses
Post-Secondary Training Institutions such as UPEI and Holland College offer a selection of courses related to developing skills and enhancing professional skills.
Just for Fun
There are also opportunities to simply learn more about something that interests you. Community school classes are offered each fall and winter all across the province. Classes are taught by volunteers, courses are inexpensive, and everyone is welcome to attend. Each year, 2,500 PEI residents attend community school to learn such things as playing guitar, painting, woodworking, sewing, and cooking.
