WHAT CAN TECHNICAL EDUCATION DO FOR YOU?

With state, federal, and personnel money becoming less and less, how can Technical Education at SWIC help students and teachers? The presentation will talk about what programs are offered to help students work toward their future career at an affordable price. The presentation is also flexible to offer some ideas on how to integrate technical education into math, science, English, etc. Stronger ties between the local schools and college will offer more opportunities to the students in a time of need.

WHY ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAMS ARE IMPORTANT TO YOUR COMMUNITY

This presentation will provide information on the High School Equivalency (GED) and literacy programs that are offered by Adult Basic Education at Southwestern Illinois College. Information will be provided about the High School Equivalency (GED) test and the High School Equivalency (GED) students, as well as how many students continue on to post-secondary education or obtain a job after obtaining their High School Equivalency (GED) certificate. Most importantly, you will learn why funding for this program is so important for our community.
