Submitted by on March 18, 2014 – 3:32 pm

A free, advanced ESOL program for adults interested in pursuing careers in health care or business/technology will be offered at Northern Essex Community College this fall. This program will help nonnative English speakers develop the skills needed to succeed in a college program in healthcare or business/technology.

Those interested are invited to attend a Career Pathways Bridge Program Registration Night.  Registration nights are being held from 6 – 9 p.m. on April 22, May 13, June 17, and July 15. They will be held at NECC Riverwalk, 360 Merrimack Street, Building 9, Entry K, Room 310.

In this free, 30-week program, running September-May, students will improve their reading and writing skills to succeed in health care or business/technology; learn workplace communication skills and create resumes and cover letters; earn six free college credits for College Success Seminar and Computer Applications; receive math support based on personal needs; and prepare for a college certificate or associate degree program in health care or business/technology. This program is open to advanced English speakers with a high school diploma or a high school equivalency credential from any country. Admission to this program is based on a placement test given at the registration night.

Courses start this September. Classes are held Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 6- 9p.m. For more information contact Sheila Corsaro at scorsaro@necc.mass.edu or 978-659-1283.

This program is funded by a grant from the Smith Family Foundation.
