Campus Serves as New Site for Adult Education and HiSET Testing
Aug 16, 2016
The National College Nashville Campus is now serving as a site for adult education classes and the Tennessee High School Equivalency Test (HiSET®), which are offered through Workforce Essentials.
Workforce Essentials manages the Middle Tennessee Regional District Adult Education Programs in 13 counties through funding by a grant from the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development. The primary classes offered are Tennessee High School Equivalency (HSE) Diploma prep courses, which prepare students to take the Tennessee High School Equivalency Test (HiSET®).
The classes are designed for adults to learn at their own pace, guided by classroom teachers who are trained to teach adults. Classes are offered during the day and evening at various times to accommodate adult students’ schedules and they are completely free.
“Once these students have earned their High School Equivalency diploma, we hope that they'll keep moving forward in their education and their careers.”
Workforce Essentials serves the over 118,000 residents in the Middle Tennessee Region District without a high school diploma. There are almost 55,000 individuals in Davidson County alone without a HSE.
“We are very pleased to partner with Workforce Essentials to offer the adult education classes and HiSET® testing here at National College,” said ANU Nashville Campus director Debra Tolladay. “Once these students have earned their High School Equivalency diploma, we hope that they’ll keep moving forward in their education and their careers.”
