Skills U Adult Education
Today, about 317,000 working-age Kentuckians do not have a high school or GED diploma. Our mission is to work with Kentuckians to improve their quality of life through education, training, and employment so they can take care of themselves and their families and help their communities and the state’s economies expand and thrive.
Kentucky Skills U provides free adult education services in all 120 counties to help Kentuckians obtain a GED. Through Kentucky Skills U, Kentuckians can gain reading, math, and communications skills that place them on a path to higher education and training and earn certifications to move ahead in their careers.
Local Kentucky Skills U teachers are ready in every county to help you break through barriers to reach your education and career goals. We focus on where you are now and give you the tools you need to qualify for more and better jobs, classes, and higher pay.
The Skills U Adult Education Program helps anyone 18 and older who is not currently enrolled in a secondary school with a number of educational goals like:
- Preparing for your GED®
- Improving your basic skills
- Learning English as a Second Language
- Preparing for college
- Preparing for employment
KCTCS and KY Skills U have also partnered to bring you an innovative GED® program where you can co-enroll in both Skills U and short-term KCTCS classes and earn your GED® plus a college certificate tuition-free under the Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship Program.
Our coordinators are there to help you each step of the way. You’ll work with Skills U instructors to boost your basic education skills and be able to complete the work needed to be successful in the KCTCS classroom at the same time. While hard work is required, the rewards are awesome!
