WCC Adult Ed Plus Transitions, GED Plus!


 


Greetings,

As one of six core programs under Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), Adult Education plays an integral role in the workforce development system by providing access to educational services for adult learners.  Literacy and numeracy are fundamental skills necessary for workforce success, as well as for personal and social well-being. Adult Education increases opportunity in the educational and workforce development of adults as workers, parents, and citizens.

While still playing a critical role in adult attainment of a high school equivalency credential, WCC Adult Transitions has exciting new opportunities planned for the Fall 2017 program. In addition to our contextualized  GED Pathway program, the recent modifications in (WIOA) opens the door for us to provide options to adults who have a high school credential, but lack the readiness skills to enroll in college, apprenticeship, or training programs. In response, we have designed a contextualized Integrated Education and Training (IET) model that increases the chance of post-secondary success by helping students build academic skills, develop a focused career path, and receive added support every step of the way while learning the skills needed to prepare for the Microsoft Office Specialist Certification (MOS).

Preparing for the MOS provides the basic computer skills needed to succeed as a college student and in the workplace. In a hands-on learning environment, students will work on gaining basic computer skills with real-life applications.

Examples:
 

  • Word: writing papers and reports
  • Power Point: making presentations
  • Excel: budgeting

If planning to go to college, Microsoft Office skills are essential tools for schoolwork. Certifications also give students a competitive edge in the workplace by providing recognized evidence of skills.

IET classes are instructor-led. With an eight-hour per week commitment, these WCC Main Campus classes will help students master the reading, math, and computer skills necessary for school and work.

****IET programming is also available to students preparing for a GED.

****All applicants must attend a mandatory orientation on Tuesday, August 22, or Thursday, August 24, to determine eligibility. To register for orientation call (734) 677-5006.

The IET day and evening classes will run:
