Winners at the recent Texas Association for Literacy and Adult Education Conference

VICTORIA, Texas – At the recent Texas Association for Literacy and Adult Education (TALAE) Conference, Victoria College’s Adult Education and Literacy Program was recognized as one of the 2019-20 “AEL Best in Class” award winners.

“This is a great honor for our program, and is proof of the dedication of our staff,” Johnson said.

The Texas Workforce Commission award was announced during the recent 2021 virtual TALAE Conference.

VC’s Adult Basic Education courses cover basic academic subjects that help adult students improve their skills in preparation to take the GED and reach a college-ready standpoint. In order for adults to remain in the workforce and improve individual earning potential, obtaining a GED and enhancing basic skills is important. Students have the option of distance learning, which allows students to complete coursework via internet from home at their own pace or working out of paper-based products.

Victoria, Goliad, DeWitt, Jackson, Lavaca, Calhoun and Gonzales counties are offering these services.

Call 361-573-7323 or email AdultEducation@VictoriaCollege.edu for more information on Adult Basic Education courses at VC.
