It's finally Spring, a new opportunity to start fresh and work towards goals. The Pincher Creek Community Adult Learning Council would like to celebrate and acknowledge the hard work of our Learners in the past year.
We are honoured to share that 5 Learners have achieved their High School Diplomas through our Learner Support Services program. 18 community members have registered for their GED (Grade Equivalency Diploma), several of whom have connected with ongoing Tutor support at our downtown Pincher Creek location. Over 30 Learners courageously graduated from the Potential Best-8 week experience. This program focuses on supporting and connecting Learners as they transition through new learning and employment goals.
Our Learners inspire each other, their Instructor's, and their families. They serve as role models and motivate the work of the Pincher Creek Community Adult Learning Council and Staff. Congratulations to each one of you, we wish you every happiness on your continued learning journey!
We have identified two key needs for our existing and potential clients: the ability to navigate financial resources for continued learning, as well as understanding what the next steps are for pursuing further learning. We are currently creating a new workshop to be released this fall that will provide Adults with a toolkit for understanding student funding applications, locating transcripts, mature learner high-school credits, and identifying interests and new learning goals. Watch our facebook page for dates and times or give us a call at 403-627-4478!
