INDIANAPOLIS – The Southeastern Career Center was recently honored at Adult Education Day.

The Indiana Department of Workforce Development and Indiana Association for Adult and Continuing Education honored Hoosier adult learners and Indiana employers at a special ceremony at the Indiana Statehouse.

During the ceremony, 16 business partners were recognized for offering adult education classes to their staff. Employers were honored for one or more of the following:

  • Providing employees’ wages for attending adult education classes;  
  • Supplying classroom space and computers or other technology to support students;  
  • Providing other classroom materials and supplies;  
  • Funding the cost to pay teachers and instructors; and  
  • Offering permanent employment to workers who successfully completed classes. 

SCC’s adult education program includes C.N.A. and Welding classes. To enroll, you must be 18 years of age and have a high school diploma or equivalent unless you are currently enrolled in a HSE program. Learn more here.

“Governor Holcomb’s agenda focuses on education, training and connecting Hoosiers to the right resources at the right time,” said DWD Commissioner Richard Paulk. “Adult Education is a proven way of ensuring job seekers and employers’ workforce needs in new and existing industry sectors across the state are met. I’m thankful to celebrate the many accomplishments of every learner, provider and employer here today.”

Adult Education programming is administered by DWD and has a presence in all of Indiana’s 92 counties. Indiana is among the nation’s top states in multiple adult education categories:

  • 1 for student achievement and growth, with Indiana leading the nation for the last five years in student achievement; 
  • 3 for the number of high school equivalency diplomas awarded; and
  • 3 for career-based certifications awarded.
