University Joomla and WordPress Template

The Council of Community Colleges of Jamaica (CCCJ) is a statutory agency under the Ministry of Education, formed by an Act of Parliament, which was passed in December 2001, to supervise and coordinate the work of Community Colleges in Jamaica. The Council, which comprises members of the Colleges, representatives from other sectors of the tertiary and secondary education system, as well as members of business and industry, held its first meeting in July 2002, and established business Offices at 24, Trafalgar Road in August of the same year.

At the present time, there are eight affiliate colleges, five of them being. Community Colleges and the other three being multi-disciplinary colleges. The colleges offer programmes from the certificate, diploma, associate and baccalaureate levels as well as a number of continuing education courses.




B.Sc. Information Technology

This programme provides a broad perspective on how to use and apply the knowledge and tools of Information Technology, Computer Science and/or Information Systems, to both self and the society. Students will be encouraged to grapple with the complexities, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of these fields in everyday life and at the workplace. Majors are premised on the notion that Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is best developed within the context of application. Prominent features of the courses are practical labs and projects that emphasise replication of real-life situations, and require the use of a variety of resources for learning


  • ComCol Finals

    This year's third annual Comcol Innovation Software Development Competition Finals  held on Friday October 20th 2017 was a complete success. The final competition came down to three schools who had demonstrate the application they had developed to a panel of judges. Portmore Communty College were in high spirits being awarded first place with Browns Town Community College and Moneague Community College coming in second and third place respectively.


    The third annual ComCol Innovation Software Development Competition is slowly approaching its conclusion with the finals being held at the Moneague Community College on October 20 2017. We recently held our Pre-judging Competition event at the brown's town community college where several teams showed up to present what they have so far to a panel of judges similar to the finals of the competition. This gave the teams the opportunity to know what the finals competition would be like and to receive feeback from the judges about their presentation. We had teams from Brown's Town Community College, Moneague and Portmore Community College.
