About our Program

What We Offer

The Continuing Education program at Seattle Central College offers non-credit classes, certification programs and professional development courses for lifelong learners.

Our students are interested in discovering new personal passions or further developing their career.

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

Our classes range from one-day business skills workshops to ten-session art classes.

While classes aren't graded, we do offer certificates of achievement and grant continuing education credits upon request.

What You Offer

You'll teach your passion and 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.

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