Abstract

Continuing education constitutes an important aspect of furthering the process of learning beyond the formal years of schooling. Leveraging mainly on the individual’s penchant for self-improvement, it fulfils a useful role in endowing skill sets and other competencies to a person. Continuing education has largely remained the mainstay of tertiary institutions, commercial schools and adult education centers. An entire gamut of evening courses catering to diverse interests is offered here.
