Adult education programs enable adults to acquire the necessary skills to thrive in today's society and benefit from the completion of secondary school, participation job training and retraining programs, and citizenship attainment, when applicable. Adult education programs take place in community colleges, high schools, universities, libraries, and life-long learning centers across the country.
As apprenticeship expands in the United States, adult educators are increasingly being asked to play a part in training and development. Many adult education providers are partnering with or operating pre-apprenticeship programs and providing a recruitment pipeline into pre-apprenticeships. When adult learners participate in apprenticeships and pre-apprenticeships, employers benefit from an expanded pipeline of qualified employees and a more diverse workforce, and marginalized workers gain the qualifications and experience they need to realize their potential at work.
