Community Colleges (CC) to serve multiple needs including (i) career oriented education and skills to students interested in directly entering the workforce; (ii) training and education programmes for local employers; (iii) high-touch remedial education for secondary school graduates not ready to enroll in traditional colleges, giving them a path to transfer to three or four year institutions and (iv) general interest courses to the community for personal development and interest.
The Plan Document also states that Community Colleges will be located to facilitate easy access to underprivileged students and such colleges could either be established as affiliated colleges of universities or as entirely autonomous institutions.
