Canning College provides a learning environment and physical conditions which support adults returning to education. While a substantial part of the curriculum is similar to parts of the general education offered by secondary schools, the College is characterised by an adult student population, including permanent residents and students from overseas; extended periods of operation (the College offers a mixture of day and evening classes for up to fifty weeks of the year); and a student population, a large percentage of which changes every year.
The College offers a range of educational programs that meet the demands of adults returning to education. They include the following:
* A range of short courses which provide opportunity for adult learners to return to education or continue education under less formal conditions.
* A secondary upgrading program which provides the opportunity for students to improve their education to a level equivalent to the final year of compulsory education.
* An extensive range of the Western Australian Certificate of Education subjects which provides students with the opportunity to complete tertiary entrance requirements in a single year.
* A range of English as a Second Language programs.
* A range of courses and services specifically for international students.
