Our Programs

Workplace Development

Workforce Preparation Activities - Adult education is a key component in the workforce development continuum in the commonwealth. Services are delivered primarily as workforce preparation activities and integrated education and training.


General Education
Development Program - Currently, the only Virginia board-approved HSE examination is the GED test, which was developed to enable persons who have not graduated from high school to demonstrate the attainment of abilities normally associated with completion of a high school program of study.


English as a Second Language - ESL programs are designed to assist adult non-native English speaking students in communicating effectively in English. A number of resources and services are available to help these students improve and demonstrate their ability to speak, listen with understanding, read, and write English in order to function and be successful in the workplace and in postsecondary education and training.


Integrated Education and Training - IET programs are a model of accelerated and intense programming that pairs academic and occupational learning to prepare individuals for the workforce of today and tomorrow.


Get Ready forServices are offered to adults over 18 that live in the city of Danville and Martinsville as well as counties of Franklin, Henry, Patrick, and Pittsylvania.
