College & Career Transitions for Adults

Adults who participate in College Transition Programs dramatically improve their chances of success in college. They score higher on pre-tests, which allows them to save money by testing directly into credit-bearing courses. They get accustomed to the habits of attending classes, completing assignments and preparing for exams, which helps them start college strong. They go to college with the confidence they need to succeed.

The College Transition Program and the Career Transitions: Health Care Edition program are designed prepare adults to be competitive college applicants and successful college students. Participants in these programs refresh the reading, writing and math skills needed for college-level work, develop the study techniques that have been proven to help adults in college, and participate in interest and skill inventories that will guide them as they choose a major or course of study.

Adults in these programs also have ample support as they get ready to apply to college. They make connections with college faculty and staff, meet with financial aid experts, and get tips from recent College and Career Transitions alums who are now college students.

Transition program alums often talk about the confidence they developed during the program. These individuals are adults who used to feel apprehensive about applying to college, but who, through their hard work and the support of their teachers and classmates, now see college as an exciting new step towards achieving their career goals.

All kinds of different people are using College and Career Transition programs- construction workers, stay-at-home moms, CNA’s, retail workers and more. Some are looking to college as an opportunity to help them move up in their current job, others are looking for new training to launch a different career.

For adults interested in a career in health care, the Career Transitions: Health Care Edition program provides all the College Transition Program coursework, plus additional skill and interest assessments specific to the health care field, as well as a science course to prepare participants for college courses in the health sciences. Participants in the Health Care Edition are interested in becoming Registered Nurses, Radiologic Technicians, Lab Technicians, Medical Assistants or other health care professionals.

Due to generous grant funding, the College Transition Program and the Career Transitions: Health Care Edition program are available at no cost to participants through Lewiston Adult Education. Morning, afternoon and evening course schedules are available. The College Transition program begins September 7th. The Career Transitions: Health Care Edition program starts September 2nd. For more information or to apply, visit www.lewistonadulted.org or call 795-4141.

Lewiston Superintendent Leon Levesque was recently honored by the Maine Adult Education Association with their Distinguished Service Award.

Levesque’s active interest in adult learning, his creativity in increasing opportunities for adults in Lewiston, and his commitment to advocating for Adult Education at state and local levels gained him recognition from the members of Maine Adult Education Association.

Lewiston Adult Education Director Eva Giles finds Levesque to be the ultimate model of lifelong learning. "Mr. Levesque attends every graduation ceremony, and each time reminds us that it is his favorite night of the year. He truly understands the challenges these students have overcome. He has an immense amount of respect for our learners, and wants to be there to celebrate their achievements and encourage them to continue learning."

Levesque also received applause for his initiative utilizing Lewiston Adult Education to conduct professional development and other technology trainings for school department faculty and staff. Lewiston Adult Education has continued to have success providing customized trainings to the school department and to area businesses as well.

Although Levesque will be retiring from Lewiston at the end of the year, his impact on the Lewiston Adult Education program will have a lasting effect not only on adult learners in Lewiston, but adult learners and Adult Education programs across the state.
