Students with Disabilities

The College is aware of the requirements of students with disabilitIies to access the resources of the College, and to participate fully in College life. Students with a disability are requested to bring their special needs, particularly with respect to examinations, to the attention of the Student Services Department within the first three weeks of the semester.

Internships

CCLCS requires internships in most of its programmes, including the Bachelor’s and Associate Degrees and Diplomas. The College is of the firm belief that internship makes it possible for students to combine work experience with academic study. Students are placed in organisations/job sites where they can apply classroom training to the real world. These internships are supervised by both the facilitating organisation and the head of the academic department to which the student belongs.

College credits are earned for this work-based learning. Packages containing more detailed Information on Internship and all the relevant application forms may be obtained from the Placement Officer, Continuing Studies or Admissions Departments.

Placement Services

Placement refers to the process by which suitable employment is found for students. The Placement Officer provides services in the following areas:

  • Resumé Writing
  • Career Guidance
  • Recruitment

Employers are encouraged to submit their employment opportunities to the College. Suitable applicants will be screened, interviewed and short listed where applicable to the Partnering Organization. In addition, existing relationships with Recruitment Agencies provide ongoing opportunity for placement. For the purpose of Internship and Placement Services, students are required to submit a soft copy of their resumes to the Placement Officer. These may be e-mailed to placement@cclcs.edu.tt. This is to facilitate timely submission to organisations.

N.B. Students are required to indicate their willingness to have their contact/employment information submitted to potential employers.
