North Island College is welcoming a new leader for its Adult Education.

Lynne MacFadgen begins her new role as Regional Director of Continuing Education and Training this week.

She says it’s becoming more important than ever for colleges to be responsive to the needs of students fresh out of high school and adult learners who are returning to school after a number of years.

MacFadgen says she’ll also be taking part in community consultations to hear from community partners and stakeholders.
