Teach for Community Education at AHC
Are you interested in teaching for Community Education?
Community Education hires instructors to teach noncredit and fee-based classes throughout the year. Advertisements for teaching opportunities are listed
on the Allan Hancock College Human Resources webpage.
The college is permitted to offer noncredit courses in the following 10 instructional
areas: Basic Skills, English as a Second Language, Citizenship, Health and Safety,
Family and Consumer Sciences, Parenting, courses for Older Adults, courses for Adults
with Disabilities, Short-Term Vocational, and Workforce Preparation. Noncredit classes
are free classes funded by the state Chancellor’s Office. Instructors must meet minimum
qualifications to teach noncredit courses, as established by the state Chancellor’s
Office. View the Minimum Qualifications PDF
If you are interested in proposing a new noncredit course, submit a Faculty Interest Form PDF along with your resume to the Community Education Coordinator, Elaine Healy, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fee-Based/College for Kids
Fee-based courses do not receive public funding. These courses charge an enrollment
fee to remain self-supporting as required by the California Community College Chancellor's
Office. Fee-based course topics are broad ranging—college for kids, personal development,
fitness, and career training. Course offerings are determined by community need/interest.
If you are interested in developing a fee-based course, please submit a fee-based
course proposal. Please note that the Community Education class schedule is developed
six months in advance; courses will not be offered in the same semester in which the
proposal is submitted.

Graduating high school with honors and realizing I did not have the monetary means to go off to a university like I had always dreamed about felt like a setback. Being at a community college, for my first semester, felt like a detriment to my education. Despite this I began to reach out to other students and was referred by a student to a program called MESA. MESA has shaped my educational career. MESA has provided me with opportunities I would have otherwise missed on my own, an opportunity to work with other like-minded majors who have since become like family. With this kind of strong foundation I have been able to excel in my science, mathematics, and engineering courses.
