Did you know that the Barbados Community College (BCC) was established in 1968? This was done by an Act of Parliament - the Barbados Community College Act, 1968-23. The Act was amended in 1990 to empower the College to grant Bachelor Degrees, Associate Degrees, Diplomas and Certificates, to students who successfully complete approved programmes of study.

The Act made provision for the BCC to offer education and training in:

  • Agriculture
  • Commerce
  • Fine Arts
  • Liberal Arts
  • Science
  • Technology

The Act also empowered the BCC to offer courses in "such other fields of Education as the Minister of Education may determine from time to time”. On this page you’ll find out more about BCC including the Board and our aims and philosophy.

 

From first batch of students to expansion


Three hundred and twenty-five students were admitted to the College in January 1969 in three Divisions:

  • Commerce
  • Liberal Arts
  • Science

Today, the College has expanded in response to the developmental needs of the country.
