Adult Continuing Education

Continuing Education programs are courses offered by school boards, community colleges, universities and private institutions to adult learners. These courses are sometimes offered during the day, but most are offered during the evening. Continuing Education instructors are generally hired on a contract basis. The salaries and working conditions vary widely, depending on the employer, the course being taught, as well as the qualifications and experience of the instructor.

Please note that high school credit courses offered by a board through continuing education require a certified teacher.
