Instructors in Edgecombe Community College’s Division of College and Career Readiness (CCR) recently earned Career Pathways Leadership credentials.

The instructors received training at the Coalition of Adult Basic Education Conference in April.

Training focused on academic achievement, building partnerships, career planning, funding, professional development, program design and delivery, sector identification, and employer engagement.

“Career Pathways Leadership certification will enable us to better advise our students and help them further their education beyond the high school credential,” says Dr. LaShawnda Washington, CCR director.

College and Career Readiness assists adults who have not earned a high school credential by helping them prepare to take the high school equivalency exam and continue on to post-secondary education and/or enter the workforce.

Students work at their own pace. Classes are taught on ECC’s Tarboro and Rocky Mount campuses, and off-campus classes are located at various sites throughout Edgecombe County.
