why the change
Why the Change?

To provide a unified strategy for adult learning that will create clear pathways to post-secondary education and employment opportunities for all students, regardless of their current educational functioning level when they enter the continuum or pipeline of learning.

who we are

Adult Education is a term used nation-wide to refer to programs for people 17 and older with less than high school competencies:

basic skills in job training
Basic Skills in Job Training
  • Non-credit Job Training programs are not, in and of themselves, below college level. In fact, many of the programs require complex skills.
  • Increasing numbers of students are enrolling without the basic skill requirements for the programs.
  • ADE will work with these programs to design intake/assessment practices and basic skill delivery within Job Training to increase the success of the students who arrive with basic skill deficits.
developmental education
Developmental Education
  • Developmental education is a field of practice and research within higher education with a theoretical foundation in developmental psychology and learning theory.  It promotes the cognitive and affective growth of all postsecondary learners, at all levels of the learning continuum.
  • At GRCC developmental education is delivered through the Academic Foundations Program (AFP)
