Adult Learners Graduate with High School Diploma

first_imgMore than 400 adults from across the province have a reason to celebrate after graduating with their high school diploma through the Nova Scotia School for Adult Learning. A series of adult education graduations will be completed today, June 26, after 23 convocations took place throughout Nova Scotia over the past two weeks. Mark Parent, Minister of Labour and Workforce Development, wished the graduates great success as they put their new skills to use during the ceremony at the Flexible Learning and Education Centres in Bedford. “I congratulate all the adult learners who recently obtained their high school diploma in Nova Scotia,” said Mr. Parent. “You are making a better life for yourselves and your families and ultimately, you are contributing to the continued prosperity of our province. “I am excited to see the many contributions you will make in Nova Scotia’s workforce.” The Nova Scotia School for Adult Learning is an initiative of the Department of Labour and Workforce Development. Since its inception in 2001, almost 2,800 adult Nova Scotians of all backgrounds have graduated with a high school diploma. “The Nova Scotia School for Adult Learning is about providing flexible opportunities for adults to return to learning and gain the skills and credentials they need to succeed in the community and workplace,” said Bobbi Boudreau, director of the adult education division, Department of Labour and Workforce Development. “The overwhelming majority of our graduates go on to successfully complete post-secondary studies and/or find meaningful employment.” The Nova Scotia School for Adult Learning co-ordinates a range of education programs for adults who want to improve their literacy skills and/or complete their high school diploma. More than 140 tuition-free programs are offered across the province in partnership with the Nova Scotia Community College, regional school boards, Université Sainte-Anne, and community-based learning organizations.last_img read more
