The workplace is changing and so are the skills that students must have in order to find a “smart job.” Workforce 2000 (Hudson Institute) identifies a growing need for increased workplace skills for the U.S. to remain a global competitor in the marketplace. The 21st century brings new demands on the existing employees and new employees entering the workforce. The Technology and Workforce Division programs reflect an effort to prepare students with skills and competencies that employers want.


ASSESSMENT REQUIREMENTS

Associate Degrees: TSI Assesment after the Pre-Assessment Activity (PAA)
Level 1 Certificate: Work keys Math and Reading

Angelina College requires that all Level 1 certificate students demonstrate proficiency in ready and mathematics to enhance success in the program and in their career.

SCANS

The SCANS Report (Secretary’s Commission of Necessary Skills, Dept. of Labor) has identified a three-part foundation and five competencies that employees must have to successfully find employment. They are:

Foundation skills

Basic Skills – reading, writing, arithmetic and math, speaking, and listening.

Thinking Skills – the ability to learn, to reason, to think creatively, to make decisions.

Personal Qualities – individual responsibility, self-esteem and self-management, sociability, and integrity.

Workplace Competencies

Systems – understand social, organizational, and technological systems, monitor and correct performance, and design or improve systems.

Technology – select equipment and tools, apply technology to specific tasks, and maintain and troubleshoot equipment.

The specific purposes of the Technology and Workforce Division of Angelina College are:

1.) To provide instruction and adequate pre-employment training for students preparing for positions in industry requiring high degrees of skill and technical knowledge.
2.) To provide for students majoring in other divisions of the college the opportunity to supplement their work as need may arise.
3.) To assist students in selecting careers in order to live fuller lives and better assume the responsibilities of American citizenship.
4.) To provide workforce education upgrade and training for current employees of industry.


AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY

The complexity of motor vehicles demands a very high level of technical knowledge and skill for service personnel. Basic learning skills in reading, writing and computation are essential to success in the field. The program is a full time commitment for one academic year, all day four days a week for two semesters plus all day for five days a week in the summer session for Cooperative Education. Twelve students are admitted each year to begin classes in August. Each student completes the program admission process that includes providing a set of proscribed tools as a condition for acceptance. The Automotive Technology curriculum prepares graduates for entry-level employment in vehicle diagnosis, repair and maintenance work. Basic vehicle theory and principles are taught in the classroom to give the student an understanding of how electrical, electronic and mechanical components function and why they fail. Actual shop practices train the student to utilize appropriate safety procedures, research repair procedures, record time and effort,to make repairs, diagnose, replace and adjust components. The program has limited enrollment to the first twelve applicants to meet the following criteria for the Fall Semester:

Admission Criteria

CHILD & FAMILY DEVELOPMENT

A degree in Child and Family Development provides an in-depth understanding of varied career opportunities in the profession through course studies. A career in Child and Family Development is very rewarding. It requires a person with positive self-concept, energetic and reliable, and genuinely enjoys working with children and their families.

Students will have hands-on supervised experience with children from birth to 13 years of age, and will apply knowledge attained in the classroom. Students will engage in field experiences at an approved licensed/accredited child care facility or public/private school in the community.

The Associate of Applied Science degree can be completed in two years by attending full time and following the degree plan. The certificate may be completed in one year if attending full-time.

The Child and Family Development program at Angelina College transfers in the degree credits to Stephen F. Austin State University towards the Bachelor of Science in Child Development and Family Living. Students transferring to Stephen F. Austin State University typically complete the Bachelor of Science degree in two years.

HUMAN SERVICES

The purpose of the Human Services Associate Program is to prepare the graduate for entry-level employment in one of the diverse human service programs such as mental health, mental retardation, troubled youth, the aging, case management, and case technician positions in child protective services.

The core curriculum consists of a general program of course work in the behavioral sciences, natural sciences and liberal arts, along with human services theory courses and skills supplemented by field work experience in an appropriate agency or institution. This program is not to be confused with the college transfer program of Social Work in the Liberal Arts Division which is for students seeking specifically to earn a Bachelors Degree in Social Work.

The Human Services A.A.S. Alcohol/Drug Abuse Counseling option has been proposed for a Teach-Out Plan. All currently enrolled students must see the faculty advisor to develop a transition degree outline and to discuss future employment.
