The St Helena Community College has on offer Skills for Success courses that will give the community the opportunity to build and develop practical skills for the workplace.
The Skills for Success courses are offered in three tiers:
Skills for Success � Foundation

Each tier has a range of short courses that will benefit students in their place of work from a Personal Motivation foundation course, to a Minute Taking intermediate course, among others.
Though none of the courses are externally accredited, participants will receive a certificate of participation for each unit completed.
Students can however, from this month, also work toward a full certificate for each Skills for Success tier offered jointly by Enterprise St Helena (ESH) and the SHCC. ESH and the SHCC are committed to working together to provide skills development training to help build St Helena's economy and workforce.
