As KKEC approaches the end of 2014, the last three months have been a pivotal moment of continually celebrating diversity, community development, and growth. We are continuing to engage, inspire, and empower both inside and beyond the classroom. KKEC has been expanding its course offerings, establishing and collaborating with new partners, and serving the students from all of Myanmar through our daytime intensive program, the evening/weekend professional programs, and our newly designed custom programs. With growth comes expansion and new initiatives.
The daytime intensive program at KKEC has a brand new name: Community Leadership and Social Studies (CLASS). This program is redesigned, retooled, and redefined from the University Preparation Program (UPP) in terms of English language acquisition, relevant Social Science subjects, professional and community leadership development, and experiential learning programs with the purpose of training and equipping the next generation leaders to contribute back to the community. We have been in full swing, connecting with our community partners all over Myanmar, marketing rigorously via print and electronically, recruiting by conducting information sessions for all programs, and attracting students from all over Myanmar for the inaugural January 2015 cohort.
Additionally, KKEC progresses with the newly named part time program: Evening & Weekend Professional Programs (EPP), adding such classes as Business English, IELTS Intensive courses and multilevel English courses. KKEC has also formulated and initiated to institute the KKEC Custom Programs, customizing course offerings to NGO's, Yangon University, and private corporations in language acquisition and professional development to their staff and faculty, furthering KKEC's outreach and community network. We look forward to the new year, 2015 with more growth and commitment to developing our communities.
