The Strategic Partnerships and Workforce Development Division at Skyline College develops quality experiences to support adults in our community. We currently offer several classes and short-term training programs that help adult students get college and career ready. Students who enroll have access to academic and career counseling, internship and employment assistance, and guided support for entering into Skyline College. Our staff helps connect students to important resources, information, and to receive college preparation tools.
Adult-Education College and Career Educational Leadership (ACCEL)
Our partnership work with Adult-Education College and Career Educational Leadership (ACCEL) recognizes that every path toward success is unique. Whether you are an adult learner with a goal to improve your education, gain employment or connect with your community—we can help you toward your vision.
We provide opportunities for adult learners at Skyline College, Jefferson Adult School and South San Francisco Adult School.
The Adult-Education College and Career Educational Leadership (ACCEL) is the planning body for San Mateo County’s Adult Education Block Grant funding.
The consortium includes the San Mateo Community College District, five adult schools, K-12 district offices and several regional community partners throughout the county.
Locally, North County’s Collaborative Action Team includes Skyline College, Jefferson Adult School and South San Francisco Adult School.
Our programs serve to:
- Create a structured and clear pathway into Skyline College that is specifically designed for adult education students. This includes guided support during the application process and access to college level courses that help students get through college easily, quickly, and affordably.
- Increase student knowledge of community resources and support services and provide dedicated support staff in assisting students with financial planning and increasing academic, life, and leadership skills.
- Provide students the tools to be “Career Ready” through resume assistance, job search strategies, interview preparation, and establish networking and LinkedIn assistance provided by the Career Readiness and Job Placement team at Skyline College.
