CVCC offers educational experiences which are relevant to the workplace opportunities found in the campus’s sphere of influence. In a constantly changing economic environment, many adults suddenly find themselves displaced from jobs they have worked for years. Thrust back into the pool of workers looking for employment, many lack cutting-edge skills needed to acquire gainful employment. Providing a Ready-to-Work program with a positive and nurturing environment can prove to be the “hand-up” needed to make them competitive in the current job market.
Additionally, other adults find themselves lacking basic skills employers are looking for in their employees. The Ready-to-Work program and the other programs available through the Adult Education Department give just such individuals the opportunity to enhance their skills. Equipping adult learners through a multi-faceted program integrating classroom instruction, computer experience, tutorial opportunities, and career counseling increases their chance of success in the workplace.
Having been a part of the Ready-to-Work program in the past, I can say first-hand that it works! There is nothing more gratifying than to walk into a place of business and see one of your Ready-to-Work participants experiencing success in the workplace. Investing in lives with real-world work solutions is the heart-beat of the community college’s adult education programs.
