Powell County Adult Education and Literacy provides education to adults in the community. This educational opportunity is provided free to any individual who wants to learn to read, get a GED, learn skills for a better job, prepare to advance to institutions of higher learning, learn basic and advanced computer skills, and much more. The length of time it would take to get a GED would depend directly on the individual’s skill level assessed during testing as well as their attitude and work ethic.
The adult education center is located at 691 Breckinridge Street behind Powell County Public Library in two mobile classroom units. An interested person may call the center at (606) 663-1948 to make an appointment.
The Powell County Adult Education Center provides many services to the community. An individual may come to literacy classes to learn to read, attend classes to earn GED, refresh academic skills to prepare for a job placement test, ACT, or Compass test, get assistance with resume writing, take the Kentucky Employability Certificate test (KEC), learn basic and advanced computer skills, get information to attend a college, university, or vocational school, and much more.
The Adult Education Center also works with employers testing prospective employees or incumbent workers in skills such as Reading, Writing, Math, ABE/GED, and workplace English as a second language, Kentucky Employability Certificate preparation, Kentucky Manufacturing Skills Standards preparation, communications, problem solving, critical thinking, team building, and computer literacy. The Center collaborates with the Powell County Jail in providing adult education to inmates housed at their detention facility as well as providing Kentucky Employability Certificate preparation for jail staff.
