Breaking Language Barriers: Vol State's Adult Education Program Launches Workplace ESL Sessions at Local Businesses

Tue, Feb 20, 2024

We are thrilled to announce an exciting development in Vol State's Adult Education program: the introduction of ESL sessions tailored specifically for employees in local warehouses and factories who do not speak English fluently.

At Vol State, we understand the critical importance of effective communication in the workplace, particularly when it comes to safety procedures and day-to-day operations. That is why our workplace ESL sessions are designed to provide targeted English language instruction, focusing on vocabulary and safety protocols relevant to each participant's specific workplace environment.

For employees who are already proficient in English but seek to enhance their skills further, we offer advanced classes that delve into digital literacy. Participants in these higher-level courses learn essential skills such as email communication and delivering concise presentations. These advanced learners are often aiming for management positions within their respective companies, and our tailored curriculum equips them with the language proficiency and confidence necessary to excel in these roles.

Our workplace ESL sessions represent a collaborative effort between Vol State's dedicated instructors and local businesses, with the shared goal of empowering employees to communicate effectively and advance in their careers. We are proud to play a role in breaking down language barriers and fostering a more inclusive and productive work environment within our community.
