School of Professional and Continuing Education 

A vitally important part in achieving the mission and objectives of UCA is the School of Professional and Continuing Education (SPCE). Founded in 2006, SPCE has 17 locations across four countries: Tajikistan (7), Kyrgyzstan (2), Kazakhstan (2), and Afghanistan (6). It  has graduated over 177,000 learners, of which 53 per cent in Central Asia and 40 per cent in Afghanistan are women (compared to a national average of 23%). Not only are SPCE courses popular with young adults, but older learners as well who need new skills and continuing education to survive in a rapidly changing job market and global competition.
