Applied Academics for Adult Education


The purpose of this program is to prepare students for academic, technical and personal success. The Applied Academics for Adult Education (AAAE) program is based upon the assessed needs of the individual and the academic and employability requirements related to Florida’s Career and Adult Education programs. Applied Academics for Adult Education provides: (1) Career assessment designed to assist persons in identifying work interests, temperament, aptitudes and learning styles; (2) Individualized basic skills related instruction to educationally disadvantaged students (including Limited English Proficient individuals) whose basic skills deficiencies may prevent success in a CTE program or prevent completion of licensure for the CTE program of their choice; (3) Employability behavior instruction for job acquisition and job retention.

Enrollment Criteria

The AAAE program is offered to students who have tested at the equivalent of 9th grade and above but need to improve their basic skills to meet the requirements of a CTE program in which they are enrolled. This program is characterized by self-paced instructional modules related to the student’s occupational goal and learning styles, flexible scheduling, and performance-based evaluation.


The desired outcome is to enable students to succeed in career training and subsequent employment. This is accomplished through learning activities designed to remedy individual academic deficiencies. Throughout the remediation process, academic concepts relevant to the workplace are emphasized and career certificate courses are coordinated with academic instruction. Upon completion of individual academic prescriptions, students' progress into or continue with their desired career certificate program.
