Adults in the Workforce Pathways (Including Older Adults)
Across the state changes in adult education have prompted Watsonville/Aptos/Santa Cruz Adult Education to organize many of our courses into pathways leading to career opportunities. For example, we have noticed that many of our art students sell the products created in class. We offer courses that could help them organize their business and market their art work. Now we are organizing these classes into pathways to make these opportunities more visible.
Classes in a pathway do not need to be taken in a particular order unless they are identified as a prerequisite. Our academic counselor, as well as department chairs and your instructor are available to provide career guidance.
