Temple College is accepting scholarship applications from adults who would like to receive training this fall for careers in high-demand allied health fields.

The Career Pathways program, which is funded by the Texas Workforce Commission, is available to adults who have finished a High School Equivalency (HSE) program, or who are in the higher levels of English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, such as those offered by Temple College’s Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) Department.

Those who qualify will participate in AEL contextualized classes while concurrently attending health professions classes offered through the Temple College Business and Continuing Education Division. Classes available this fall will enable participants to earn certification as Clinical Medical Assistants, EKG Technicians or Medical Billing and Coding Specialists.

Before the healthcare classes start, the Temple College Adult Education and Literacy Department will provide a two-week academy to help individuals prepare to go into an allied health training program. Classes will cover topics such as medical terminology, medical math, protecting patient privacy, and safety in the healthcare workplace.

Students will also receive training and assistance with resume writing, interviewing skills and “soft skills” such as teamwork, time management and work ethic. In partnership with the Workforce Solutions of Central Texas, students will be screened for eligibility to participate in a variety of social assistance, job readiness and internship programs.

Applications for the fall will be accepted through June 21. For more information, contact the AEL Career Navigator at 254-298-8594 or sipriana101@templejc.edu
