Welcome to the Adult Education and Literacy Department page of the St. Charles Community College website!
St. Charles Community College coordinates a four-county Adult Education and Literacy program in St. Charles, Warren, Lincoln and Pike counties to teach basic reading, math and writing skills, to prepare people to take the GED® Tests and to assist non-native speakers in gaining English proficiency. Free day and evening classes are available.
Students must be at least 17 years of age and not enrolled in secondary school. For more information about class times, class sites or any of the services described below, call St. Charles Community College at 636-922-8411 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
St. Charles Community College's Adult Education program provides group instruction as well as one on one tutoring assistance within our GED® and ESL classrooms. Students, requiring special assistance, are referred through our class orientation and registration process. Students at all skill levels are encouraged to become part of our program.
Volunteers interested in working with GED® preparation, English as a Second Language, or Adult Literacy students should call 636-922-8504. Volunteers are needed to tutor students individually and/or in the classroom, to provide student orientation assistance, to help teachers with classroom activities and to assist with administrative duties. Training and materials are provided. Volunteer tutors learn how to assess students' abilities, how to select appropriate instructional materials, and how to use the materials to provide maximum progress for the students.
Those interested in teaching Adult Education and Literacy classes (GED® preparation and/or English as a Second Language) should submit an Application for Employment to the Human Resources Department of St. Charles Community College. Daytime and evening classes meet in St. Charles, Warren, Lincoln and Pike counties.
AEL instructors are required to have a bachelor's degree. Proficiency in a second language is not required for ESL instructors. AEL certification is required and is provided through the program. Teachers are required to maintain their AEL certification by attending 20 hours of professional development in-service training each year. All positions are part-time.
Substitute teachers are also needed. The minimum academic requirement for substitute teachers is 60 college credit hours.
Reasonable accommodations will be provided for persons defined as disabled under the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Students must initiate a request for such services and must provide written disability documentation from qualified professionals. Requests must be made 1-8 weeks prior to attendance at the first class. In some instances, it may be necessary for the student to delay registration or to withdraw from the course to allow the college ample time to provide appropriate accommodations. Students may contact Pam Bova, the coordinator of accessibility services, at 636-922-8247 or e-mail email@example.com.
