Basic Skills Plus Emphasizes Job Training

The Division of College and Career Readiness at Edgecombe Community College celebrates the completion of its fourth Basic Skills Plus cohort.

Basic Skills Plus provides accelerated job training for students seeking a high school diploma or its equivalent.

Students completed the Nurse Assistant I career pathway and ended the semester with a high school credential, continuing education credits, and a Career Readiness Certificate.

Three new career pathways will be added to the Basic Skills Plus program this fall.
