About the College
Catholic College of Mandeville (CCM), founded by the late Bishop Paul Michael Boyle, C.P. in 1992, was established to respond to the increasing demand to upgrade the teaching skills of Jamaican educators. Cognizant of the fact that many teachers, pre-trained and post, were unable to fund their education, Bishop Boyle endeavored to ensure that the college would be accessible to everyone through the formula of affordable tuition costs plus quality training.
The college received accreditation and re-accreditation status of two of the main programmes, the Bachelors in Primary Education and the bachelor’s in early childhood education . Currently there are 151 students pursuing their undergraduate education.
The Master of Education in Teaching & Learning Programme, in partnership with Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, USA, commenced July 27, 2008, saw its first graduates on September 26, 2010, and received accreditation from the UCJ in 2011. Currently, there are 60 students enrolled in the M.Ed. Programme which operates one weekend per month over 20 months.
A new 6th form programme for grade 11 graduates commenced in October 2020. Funded by the Ministry of Education, students get an opportunity to continue their education and to prepare for the world of work.
In January 2020, a Master’s in special education and a Diploma in Education for persons with a degree who want teacher training will come on stream. Later in 2020, the College will offer a master’s in Early Childhood Education
