What is Adult Education? Adult Education, as part of the Workforce Innovations and Opportunity Act (WIOA), provides services to adults to build the knowledge and skills necessary for high school equivalency (HiSET), employment, post-secondary opportunities, and economic self-sustainability. The adult education program provides educational opportunities for adults who wish to acquire competencies necessary for further education, employment, or personal enrichment.
Adult education programs are generally offered as a way for adults to earn their high school equivalency diploma or to gain further knowledge in their chosen profession. Options are widely. Adult education, in the broadest sense, is any form of learning adults engage in beyond traditional schooling that ends in their 20s. In the narrowest sense, adult education is about literacy—adults learning to read the most basic materials.
Adult education and literacy services are provided with support from the Gulf Coast Workforce Board to help individuals find a job, keep a job, or get a better job.
