Vocational English as a Second Language (VESL)

VESL Career Paths is a one-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 complete this program will earn a VESL Career Paths Certificate of Competency.  In addition, students who also complete the Microcomputer Applications elective will earn the General Office Skills Certificate of Completion.
