Adult Education and Literacy
Students wishing to improve their TSI scores for college placement purposes can participate in the HSE classes. Instruction will focus on the particular content for which the student is deficient.
IET (Integrated Education Training)
IET training is paired with technical programs and is intended to reinforce the instruction being provided in the technical program. In addition to attending the technical classes, the student is expected to attend support classes through the AEL program.
Transitions & Career Navigation
Transition classes are offered for those students preparing for college. Students will learn the steps needed to enroll in college. In addition, they'll have an opportunity to complete a career cluster inventory, learn time management and good study skills and obtain instruction intended to make the student be more college ready.
Workforce Literacy classes are offered through partnerships with local employers. Instruction is intended to focus on the specific employers' basic skill needs for their workforce. Current business partners include Republic Elite, Happy Nails & Spa and Tyson in Carthage and Center. If you are an employer and you would like to discuss this opportunity, please contact Laura Wood or Rebekah Burkhalter.
The Academy Model
The academy model supports program transparency and ensures that students can more directly identify a program of study within services that addresses their objectives. The Academy model helps them to meet the career, higher education, personal and familial goals that bring them to receive services. Providers of the Academy must ensure that they structure services around students' objectives, including careers and training in specific sectors or life goals through the Academy model. Academy models help to align recruitment, assessment, orientation and instructional services in ways that match students' areas of interest with programs of study and other services providing students with a path to help them plan for their futures. Current Academy Models include:
- Certified Nurse Aide
- Certified Nurse Aide Elite
- Pharmacy Technician Elite
- Para-Professional (Coming Soon!)
