Vocational ESL (VESL) Career Paths

VESL Career Paths is a two-semester program designed to prepare advanced ESL students for academic and career success. VESL Career Paths combines courses in oral and written communication, career and life planning, and computer skills to help students move into college credit programs that lead to certificates and degrees. These courses are also designed to improve the chances of a job promotion or career progress for students with employment as their main goal.


Students who have completed Level 5 or Level 6 or test into Level 6 through our ESL Placement Test are eligible to join the VESL Program. No additional testing is required.
