NOVA SCOTIA COMMUNITY COLLEGE-CUMBERLAND
Mission Statement:The Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) is a province-wide institution for vocational training and education.

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. The NSCC Cumberland Campus recently completed renovations which include a new library, a centre for student success, a cafeteria, and a daycare. The Licensed Practical Nursing Program, General Arts & Science program and the one year certificate in Plumbing were added to the course offerings in 2005.
