The Employability Skills Center (ESC) of the Division of Adult and Continuing Education (DACE) of the Sweetwater Union High School District (California) was created out of a need to help adult students develop the basic skills that are required for success in their chosen vocational programs but not taught in regular adult basic education classes. This document includes a brief introduction to the ESC and its procedures and the following materials developed for the ESC program to provide basic skills training to persons in the DACE's certified nurse assistant program: a study plan sheet; a vocabulary packet and key; three sample lesson plans and a list of suggested chapters from the Reading Attainment System series; computer- and instructor-generated study guides and keys from the Reading in the Workplace--Health Care series; certified nurse assistant text tests, a Cloze test, and vocabulary and idiom tests and keys. The certified nurse assistant materials, which are based on a competency-based instruction format, include a substantial number of instructional materials and exercises for vocational English as a Second Language. A 24-item of materials and computer software used in the nurse assistant program is included. (MN)
