More than 70% of all Georgia employees entered the workforce at a time when only strong backs and quick hands were needed. Jobs required little reading, writing, and computational skills. However, today's employers must utilize rapidly changing technology and comply with increasingly complex regulations. Reading, writing, language, and job-related basic skill applications are now required of all employees.
At West Georgia Technical College, the Adult Education Program provides literacy skills, a full range of GED® test preparation and job readiness skills to students at locations in Carroll, Coweta, Douglas, Haralson, Heard, Meriwether and Troup counties.
Workforce learning programs are available to evaluate employee skill levels in reading, mathematics, and language skills along with their ability to perform job specific tasks requiring skill application. Programs may then be developed and implemented to meet those needs. Employees may receive classes in the community, at West Georgia Technical College or on the job site.
Services provided are:
Basic Skills (Reading and Writing)
English as a Second Language Programs
