Adult Education Offers New Career Advising Program

ACTCs Adult Education Program is offering a new service to help people reach their personal goals of earning a GED, attending college or finding a job.

The Career Advising and Transition Services Program (CATS) is a comprehensive online program that provides a standardized method for career advising. Paired with the KY Postsecondary and Career Planning System, CATS helps individuals explore their career interests and skills, learn about postsecondary options and enter the world of work.

Services for those interested in college include career interest and skill inventories, college exploration and program information, financial aid information, help with college applications and scheduling of college placement tests.

Services for those seeking a job or better job include online job search, job placement assistance, help with job application, resume preparation and interview skills.

The Adult Learning Center is offering CATS classes at the Roberts Drive Campus on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. CATS can also be offered to individuals in conjunction with the One Stop Center.

All services are free of charge. Preregistration is required. To register or receive more information, call the Center at 606-326-2457.

CATS is a partnership among TENCO, WIA, One Stop Centers and Adult Education programs around the state. The participating Adult Education Programs were chosen by Kentucky Adult Education. Online activities are handled through the Kentucky Postsecondary and Career Planning Service.
