Bridges are innovative approaches to skill delivery that help adults in need of basic skills or English Language Learning succeed in post-secondary training. Leading to career-path employment or further learning in a specific industry or occupational sector, bridges at Wisconsin’s technical colleges typically link basic skills development with occupational skills training and accelerate the transition from pre-college to college level work.
Wisconsin Bridges Case Studies profiles various bridge programs that are being piloted throughout the state. This case study discusses the English Language Learning/Certified Nursing Assistant (ELL/CNA) Bridge at Northcentral Technical College.
