The College was founded in 1966 with a single goal: To provide workers of Trinidad and Tobago with education and training.
Our mission is to increase the capacity and consciousness of the Labour and Co-operative movements and to empower present and future working people, people based and professional institutions both locally and regionally. To do this we will:
• Provide the highest quality educational and research programmes for our students in a physically and intellectually supportive learning environment;
• Provide and enable a highly committed, qualified, dynamic and professional staff;
• Be proactive and innovative in meeting the needs of all our stakeholders in a continuously changing and competitive environment.
Cipriani College of Labour and Co-operative Studies is a tertiary/community College offering full- and part-time Certificate, Diploma, Associate and Bachelor’s Degree programmes.
The College’s activities do not only embrace the usual teacher/student relationship. From time to time, the College is called upon to train workers from different organizations, both public and private, in areas where our expertise has clearly been established. As the demand for knowledge workers on a national, regional and global level becomes greater, Cipriani College seeks to move its own employees to the level where staff can more effectively serve the needs of our core constituencies and stakeholders. They come to us with the expectation that their skills and knowledge will be upgraded to keep pace with the current challenges which they as workers must face.
Cipriani College is still developing, and in time hopes to assume regional leadership in the areas of its specialization. With new recreational facilities and living quarters, and most of all, with a renewed commitment to constructively meet the challenges of the new global order, the College will soon be in a position to stake its claim of being a shining example of what a tertiary institution in the region should be about.
The main campus of the Cipriani College of Labour and Co-operative Studies is off the Churchill-Roosevelt Highway in Valsayn. This location houses as many as nineteen (19) classrooms including two classroom type auditoriums, a state of the art computer laboratory, two libraries, a communication and audio-visual unit and a cafeteria. CCLCS also conducts classes at the Pleasantville Senior Comprehensive School, San Fernando and the El Dorado Secondary School in the East. In Tobago, the Cipriani College of Labour and Co-operative Studies is located at Tobago Glass Supplies, Rousseau Trace, Spring Garden Road,
