The video presents a conversation between Amrit Ahluwalia, the newspaper’s managing editor, and WCC personnel Maria Abalo-Zarate, English Language Acquisition (ELA) coordinator; Lynn Rabhan, Transitional Programs for College and Career director; and Renita Allen Dawson, associate vice president for Workforce Continuing Education Services.
Quest Academy provides an enhanced experience to higher level ELA students.
The academy recruits advanced ELA students with a focus on students who are professionally certified in their native country. It combines English language learning and academics with technical and occupational training.
Quest graduates have found employment or volunteer positions in the community and have enrolled in Workforce Continuing Education and curriculum courses and programs such as dental hygiene, phlebotomy, Microsoft Word specialist, wiring, Cisco Academy, and more.
