Adult Education & Literacy

The name Learning Works has been adopted to describe Vermont's Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) system. Learning Works is the AEL team at the agency and the direct service providers holding grants or contracts for the purpose of delivering services to adult learners statewide. Adult learners are defined as persons 16 years of age and older, not enrolled in school, and lacking essential skills or a credential equivalent to high school completion. Currently, Vermont Adult Learning holds the statewide AEL grant and in turn works in partnership with three other providers (i.e., Northeast Kingdom Learning Services, Central Vermont Adult Basic Education, and The Tutorial Center). It is this group of organizational partners that has been given responsibility, in collaboration with the agency, for designing and implementing a statewide system for the provision of adult education and literacy services.
