Employ Ability / Work Ready Skills

The Workplace Education component provides services at a workplace, in collaboration with employers. Workplace education may include reading, writing, computation, critical reading, problem solving, communication, English-as-a-second language and computer literacy. In a workplace education program, an existing curriculum may be adapted to make instruction relevant to the learner's job. There is also a GED/Employer/Employee Incentive Program.
