Professional Advancement Centre (PAC)is a private Institute, located in Pallisa district, in the Eastern part of Uganda within Pallisa town council. Like other rural based regions , Pallisa has low literacy levels, low income levels and generally poor standards of living which called for some transformational strategies. Education and Training at this level is likely to act as one of the turn around strategies. Other existing tertiary institutions either do not offer relevant courses or have a religious bias or are prohibitive in terms of costs.
PAC has well-qualified Professionals, Managers, Trainers and Educationists, with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the public sector, private sector, and not for profit sector.

My advice to students, parents, working professionals and the general public is to treat education as an investment. “The roots of education are bitter but the fruits are sweet”.
