WorkForce Central partners with local colleges throughout Pierce County to help adults without high school equivalencies get connected to Basic Education for Adults (BEdA) programs. Providers include Clover Park Technical College, Bates Technical College, Pierce College, Tacoma Community College, and Tacoma Community House.

BEdA programs teach foundational skills — reading, writing, math, technology, and English language — so adults can gain the skills they need for high school completion programs.

The programs offer a life-changing opportunity for adults to succeed as students and as employees in their future careers.

To learn more about BEdA, contact Natalie Archer, Pierce County BEdA Navigator, at narcher@tacomacc.edu or 253-433-0781.
