You’re Invited! Open House

You’re Invited! Open House Wed. Nov. 24th 6:30pm

Did you know that literacy is actually a use it or lose it skill? It is not a skill that is learned once and remains fresh in your mind over a lifetime. Literacy even affects social issues such as health, justice, and safety. Literacy is important!

Come to the Prince Edward Learning Centre open house to enjoy refreshments and find out just how little time it would take to upgrade your education.

We now offer extended classroom hours for people who are busy during the day. There are always full day classes and still some space available every week day until 4:30. Now there will also be classes from 6:30 – 8:30 two evenings a week. And it is all free!
Because you may only need a couple of nights a week to upgrade, we are now making it easier to improve your Literacy Basic Skills, Essential Skills, or prepare to get your GED or Grade 12 Diploma. Get job specific training, computer skills, and so much more! Check out our new interest courses such as creative writing, managing your money, and digital scrapbooking, just to name a few.

Keeping your mind active is what life-long learning is all about. Prince Edward Learning Centre is dedicated to helping adult learners acquire the skills to achieve their personal learning and employment goals. The Centre has been a part of The County for over 16 years and has a positive record of helping adults who want to improve their skills, employment potential, or who want to go on to higher education.

One of our daytime students says: “I like the quiet and seriousness of the classroom. I am here to work on learning more so I can move on and up. I know I am in the business of learning when I am at Prince Edward Learning Centre.”

Ask yourself: Do you sometimes wish you had gone further in school? Do you want to improve your job prospects? Have you avoided asking for a promotion because you didn’t think you had the skills to do the new job? PELC can help!

“We believe that everyone has the right to become literate and we believe that effective learning requires a climate of mutual respect.” states Linda Conley, Prince Edward Learning Centre Director. “Prince Edward Learning Centre can help you maintain independence and quality of life and enhance your ability to actively take part in this community.”
