The administration at the Montego Bay Community College, in St. James, is unrelenting in its efforts to maintain its reputation as the college of choice among persons seeking tertiary-level training in western Jamaica.

Director of Marketing and Public Relations at the college, Ruiz Warren, who addressed a JIS ‘Think Tank’ in Montego Bay, on November 7, said the institution remains very appealing to students leaving high schools in western Jamaica, and has been expanding on all fronts to meet the growing demand.

Mr. Warren, who also studied at the college, said the trend of students deciding to pursue tertiary-level education at the institution over other more established universities, has been growing.

“The educational landscape in western Jamaica has expanded tremendously in the last number of years, and so all the institutions are aggressively marketing their programmes and trying to attract students,” he said.

Mr. Warren said the flexibility with which students can study at the Montego Bay Community College is a big plus for the institution.

Meanwhile, Acting Principal of the College, Dr. Maureen Nelson, said the institution is actively pursuing the idea of offering more foreign language training to its students.

The college currently offers conversational Spanish as part of some courses, and Dr. Nelson is planning to add more to meet the influx of visitors coming into Montego Bay, especially from the Far East.
