Director’s Welcome

Welcome to the Cipriani College of Labour and Cooperative Studies! A decision to attend CCLCS is an excellent choice.

Few experiences will compare to your college times. In every programme in which you participate at Cipriani and in every class that you take, we are committed to providing a learning environment that will help open doors to new insights, challenges and intellectual and personal growth experiences and opportunities.  Take advantage of it!

At Cipriani, we offer academic and other opportunities that are nationally and regionally unique.  As a small accredited college with a mandate to “build the capacity and consciousness of the Labour and Cooperative movements in Trinidad and Tobago and the region,” we offer certificate courses and degree programmes with highly accomplished lecturers and extraordinary staff who focus on you and your success. Every CCLCS student, at both our Associate and Bachelor degree levels, engages in one-on-one supervised research experiences that contribute to building both your personal skill set and the practical knowledge base of the Labour and Cooperative movements.

You are our raison d’ệtre and our number one priority. Our goal is to provide you with the support you need to be successful in your college career and beyond. This support includes testing and developmental education courses, admission, registration, student orientation, convocation, counselling and academic support services and a newly-energized health insurance programme through the Student Guild.  Our Academic Affairs and Student Affairs units offer a wide array of academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular services and activities, carefully and intentionally designed to give you opportunities for having fun and becoming more involved with other students while achieving your educational goals for advancing into and through successful careers.

 Our offices will be glad to answer any questions or address any concerns that you have regarding school policies, activities and opportunities.

As the new Director of the College, I want to welcome you again to Cipriani.  I invite you to explore and make the most of the wonderful opportunities and journey that await at CCLCS.  Have a great year and good success!
