Career Pathways

Adult Education & Literacy now offers career training services free of charge to students. We have several providers across San Antonio that provide career training in high demand occupations such as Certified Nurse Aide, Pharmacy Tech, Information Technology (IT), Administrative Assistant, and more.

Our career training programs include three main components that students must participate in to qualify for free career training:

  1. Career Training – training that will lead to an industry recognized credential
  2. Workforce Preparation Activities – dedicated time to enhance your job skills (sometimes called soft skills)
  3. AEL Support Class – class to review the most challenging topics from your career training and to continue to improve your English skills or study for your HSE exam (GED or HiSET)

What makes our training unique is that you will work on these three components at the same time. You do not need to wait until you have learned English or completed your HSE to start training for a job. You can earn your HSE at the same time as you complete your career training. You will be qualified for a job in a career path you love in a shorter amount of time.
