with Vanessa Richards

Calendar Sep 28, 2017 at 3 pm, runs for 12 weeks

More and more jobs require computer skills and some employers require all job seekers to apply online for jobs. Many jobs require employees to know how to use email, search the internet, create documents, and handle other digital literacy tasks. Ellsworth Adult Education has partnered with NorthStar Basic Computer to teach digital literacy skills and document mastery by awarding certificates while also preparing the next steps for your career path. Join this self-paced learning lab to learn basic computer skills. The initial assessment determines the skills and knowledge you need to design a program to meet your own needs. Your advisor will work with you to set up a program. To earn a certificate, each assessment must be taken in a supervised setting. Priority given to High School Completion and Certificate program students. Open to the public on a space-available basis. Ongoing Enrollment.  No class 11/23/17 or 12/28/17.

The first step to taking this class is to request a meeting with our student advisor. Call Ellsworth Adult Education at 207.664.7110, email adultedinfo@ellsworthschools.org or stop by our office located in the Mill Mall.

Calendar Oct 18, 2017 at 2 pm, runs for 2 weeks

Students will visit six area employers in the region to see what it’s like to work there. You’ll tour the facility and attend a Q & A session with an administrator and supervisor. You will also hear from people working in a variety of positions. When you leave, you’ll have a good idea of what it might be like to work in the field and what you need to do to prepare. In addition, at least three employer panels will be organized and held at our University College site.

Automotive, construction, healthcare, hospitality and finance are all potential areas of focus. The field trips will be organized based on projections of high wage, high demand jobs and student interest. Details of this project are still developing.

During the 2017-18 school year, Ellsworth Adult Education has received a donation from Dollar General Literacy Foundation to pilot this workshop, which is geared toward assisting learners in identifying career paths early in their work with us.

Please get in touch with us to be put on our contact list; call Ellsworth Adult Education at 207.664.7110, email adultedinfo@ellsworthschools.org or stop by our office located in the Mill Mall.
