About our Program

What We Offer

The Continuing Education program at Seattle Central College offers non-credit classes, in personal enrichment and professional development.

Our students are interested in discovering new passions, interests, hobbies and skills or developing their careers and job opportunities.

Courses are held during the days and evenings, throughout the week and on weekends.

Our classes range from one session workshops, to ten session classes, or multiple course certification programs, and everything in between.

While classes aren't graded, we do offer certificates of achievement or continuing education credit certificates upon request.

What You Offer

You'll teach your passion and/or profession to self-motivated adult learners.

In concert with the school's mission, your class is innovative, engaging, and dynamic.

You should seek to build a sense of community in the classroom, and to respect the diversity of our unique neighborhood and community.

Instructors must have a professional demeanor and maintain a positive learning environment for all students.
