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.  

Noncredit Courses

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
  • Parent Education
  • Courses for Older Adults
  • Courses for Adults with Disabilities
  • Short-Term Vocational
  • Workforce Preparation.

Noncredit classes are free classes funded by the state Chancellor’s Office. Instructors must meet statewide minimum qualifications to teach noncredit courses, as established by the state Chancellor’s Office. View the Minimum Qualifications

Fee-Based/College for Kids

We also offer Community Service Fee-Based courses. Fee-based courses are self-sustainable, do not receive public funding, and as a result, charge an enrollment fee 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 along with your resume to the office of the academic dean. You may find the proposal templates under the Faculty Resources page. 

Please note that the Community Education class schedule, Spectrum, is developed six months in advance; fee-based courses will not be offered in the same semester/term in which the proposal is submitted.

Deadlines to submit fee-based course proposals are as follows:

  • To offer a class in the summer - Nov. 1
  • To offer a class in the fall - Dec. 1
  • To offer a class in the spring - July 1
