The mission of the Statewide Tennessee Adult Education Office is consistent with the purposes stated for Title II of the Workforce Investment Act. The mission of the Adult Education program in Tennessee is to provide adult education and literacy services in order to:
- assist adults to become literate and obtain the knowledge and skills necessary for employment and self-sufficiency;
- assist adults who are parents to obtain the educational skills necessary to become full partners in the educational development of their children; and
- assist adults in the completion of a secondary school education.
These purposes are consistent with Goal 3 of Tennessee's Workforce Development system:
Knowledge/Skills Attainment: Empower individuals through education and lifelong learning to acquire skills and knowledge to succeed in the dynamic and changing Tennessee workforce.
