NOVA SCOTIA COMMUNITY COLLEGE-AKERLEY
The Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) is a province-wide institution for vocational training and education. Certificate and diploma programs are offered in business, health services, human services, trades and technology at the Akerley Campus. NSCC students gain practical lab and workshop experience and complete a work placement. Courses are developed in consultation with government, business and industry, and reflect sector demand and employment trends. NSCC instructors are recruited directly from industry and maintain their connections in the field, thus ensuring that NSCC programs remain practical and relevant. 91 per cent of NSCC graduates are employed; 80 per cent work in their chosen field.
Akerely Campus is currently NSCC's largest campus. The college offers Aviation Technology and Aircraft Maintenance programs through an agreement with the Aviation Institute in nearby Shearwater. A new welding lab and new facilities for the Culinary Arts programs, including new kitchens, a cafeteria and a fine dining restaurant, were recently completed.
