Transitions and Career Pathways Intro

Transitions and Career Pathways Intro

College and Career Readiness programs are provided for students with low basic education skills in writing, reading, math, and computer literacy. Integrated education and training is provided to low-skilled adults, individuals with disabilities, literacy program participants, out-of-school youth, ex-offenders, and English language acquisition students.  Students receive instruction and support as they complete their adult high school diploma or its recognized equivalent and perhaps earn employment related credentials and skills. Approved providers offer transitions programs and services using adult education career pathways and other student success services.     

Transition programs are aligned with adult education content standards, postsecondary education completion goals, college entry readiness, life skills, employment instruction and training.

  • Career Pathways include academic instruction, non-academic services, and support for students to ensure student success and transition to postsecondary career and employment options. Colleges have implemented transitions programs such as the Integrating Career Awareness Curriculum, Bridge Instruction, Transitions Academies, Integrating Computer Skills Training in Basic Skills, and Basic Skills Plus.
  • Popular career occupations include: HVAC and Refrigeration, Medical Office Administration, Health Science careers such as Nursing Assistant and Pharmacy Technician; Early Childhood Education, Computer Information Technology; Welding Technology; and Automotive Systems Technology.
