Adult Education

Vocational Programming

Integrated Career and Academic Preparation System (ICAPS)

The belief of Adult Education is that attainment of the GED is no longer the ending point, but rather a starting point. Vocational programming at Lake Land College Adult Education is meant to provide individuals with post-secondary educational opportunities that will increase student marketability in the workplace and allow for sustainable wages for the individual and their families. ICAPS fosters a partnership between Adult Education and Career & Technical Education by integrating both technical training and basic skills education into the educational experience, delivering education in a team taught environment, and culminating in educational functioning level gains and industry recognized credentials.

Students are required to attend an orientation in order to enter into the ICAPS program. On top of classroom instruction individuals may be required to attend regular tutoring sessions. Eligibility is determined by several factors, including but not limited to: skill level, educational attainment, socio-economics and current employment status. Students must be at least 18 years of age and preferential treatment will be given to individuals without a GED or high school diploma.
