Certified Nursing Assistant Bridge Program (NTC)
ELL/CNA Bridge Program Integrate English-Language-Learning (ELL) instruction into the federally required nursing assistant curriculum to bridge the gap between program expectations and cultural language barriers that prevent learners from achieving success in the CNA program. The proposed contextualized basic course will be team taught by an ELL and a CNA instructor, and the proposed ELL for CNA course will be taught by an ELL instructor. These courses will represent the "first rung" in the Health Career Pathway.
CNC Skills Institute (WTC)
Success in CNS This project will create a Computer Numeric Control Skills Institute consisting of three modules that combine basic skills and technical skills learning and prepare students both for work and for moving on to the diploma CNC program. Each module will be worth six credits that count in the diploma program. Team teaching will be used in some courses of the modules. This project target the region’s Hmong population, but the curriculum model followed will also be applicable to other disadvantaged adult populations.
NWTC – General Manufacturing Certificate Program, Welding Certificate Program
Rising in Northeast Wisconsin Develop two certificate programs, General Manufacturing and Welding, which will equip learners with the basic skills to secure a job and pursue additional training/educational opportunities for increased earnings. Integrated "bridge" curriculum will be developed for both certificates that incorporate both technical and academic skills needed to be successful in an entry-level manufacturing or welding position. The certificate program courses will be team taught by Trades and General Studies instructors.
Industrial Maintenance (MPTC)
RISE—Industrial Maintenance Create a career ladder for the Industrial Maintenance program and design standardized certificates across the districts for the program. Consider the need to develop bridge curriculum to contextualize basic education coursework for the industry. Basic Skills and ELL students will bridge into the occupational program through attendance in a Pretech Welding course and an ELL Pretech Metal Fabrication and Welding course.
NATC – Career Pathways to Information Technology Careers
IT Integrated Curriculum This project will modify Network Fundamentals and Project Management courses to integrate reading and math basic skills with technical skills. Also, four new 1-credit basic skills courses that specifically complement the learning activities of these modified IT courses will be created. This package of new courses will eliminate separate development/remedial requirements for the Web Analyst/Programmer and Computer Support Specialist associate degree programs and existing short term certificates that ladder into these associate degrees.
Pre-Trades Bridge Program (LTC)
Three Courses Closer to College – Three C Create two pre-trades courses, reading and math, to be combined with the Bay Area Workforce Development Board’s Work Certified Program to form a bridge program to prepare learners for the Industrial Maintenance, Machine Tool Operation, or Welding programs. Learners who complete the bridge program will qualify for program admission without further assessment. The reading and math courses will be contextualized and team taught by GOAL faculty and program instructors. The Work Certified program will be taught by an instructor who is certified by the Bay Area WDB.
Create a career ladder and six modularized credits of pre-tech curriculum for the Welding program. The pathway will be designed to provide enrollment opportunities for the Adult Basic Education and English Language Learning Adults who are interested in pursuing a career within the Welding profession. Courses will be designed to be team taught by Basic Education and Occupational instructors.
Welding Certificate Program (CVTC)
Welding Career Opportunities Develop a 16-week certificate program to increase welding career opportunities among low income individuals lacking post-secondary education to meet the workforce demand and improve the wages and career advancement for production workers in Clark County.
