Share Your Expertise!

Thank you for your interest in teaching at South Seattle College's Continuing
Education Department!  We work diligently to improve the quality and variety of the learning
opportunities we offer to our community.  We are always interested in receiving new class
proposals.

 

Our program is geared to the adult learner and includes both business and personal
enrichment courses. We seek creative, innovative and enticing classes to engage our
audience. We look for educated, organized and articulate instructors with proven teaching
skills; you need not have a teaching degree, but experience teaching adults is recommended.

 

Our Continuing Education course listing is included in South Seattle College's
quarterly class schedule; delivered to over 70,000 households in the West Seattle area. We
list our classes here, on our website, which has proven to be an outstanding tool for students
to easily register and receive instant class information. We also produce our own mailings
directed at our adult learning audience. 
Your participation in our marketing efforts is
critical
. You best know your audience. Instructor promotion is by far the most effective route
to maximize the number of participants.
