Program Overview

The Private Industry Council's (PIC) Education Division provides a wide range of educational services to fulfill the special needs of the adult learner as well as youths. Its mission is to make students as employable as possible through academic enrichment and to develop the essential skills within each student that meet the demands of our present society. The Education Division includes a multitude of programming, including Adult Education, which offers a wealth of resources to adult learners. Programs that fall under the umbrella term "Adult Education" help adult students gain the skills they need to go on to post-secondary training and employment. ADULT EDUCATION Adult Career Education Skills Classes (ACES) and Family Literacy classes present the academic skills needed to transition to post-secondary education or training, and eventual employment, along with skills required to pass the GED® tests. Courses cover the basics: reading, writing, and math. But they also include such things as: Academic Skills Test Taking Skills Assessment Note Taking Learning Style Exploration Memory and Concentration Placement Exams GED® Preparation Official GED® Practice Tests Preparation for Postsecondary Tests of Adult Basic Education (TABE) Personal Development Accessing Resources Effective Communication Problem Solving Critical Thinking Time Management Stress Management Short and Long Term Goal Setting Workplace Skill Development Decision Making Self-Management Team Work Effective Problem Solving As a result, students become reflective and curious about their learning styles, multiple intelligences, accomplishments, and goals. They understand that existing and future employment requires them to become acutely aware of their individual talents, strengths, and abilities to achieve employment in their career(s) of choice.
