Adult Career Pathways
The Adult Career Pathways (ACP) program is designed specifically to support learners with career-related goals and to strengthen their preparation for further education and training. The priority is to assist students in acquiring the academic skills, career readiness skills, and information necessary to gain access to a career pathway. The Department awards this funding through collaboration with regional workforce partners who identify a priority or priorities specific to each workforce region.
Instruction in the Adult Career Pathways program integrates the priority or priorities identified by the regional workforce partner with the academic skills needed by learners to bypass developmental education in the post secondary system and to meet their career-related goals.
