TESA Program’s Workplace Readiness (pictures below)
The TESA Program’s Workplace Readiness course, which previously ran out of the TESA Works storefront in Apple Valley, is now located at the DCTC. This class focuses on the foundation of work skills, through hands-on activities.
Students continue to work on projects sold at the TESA Works; these items are sold out of a Kiosk. The Kiosk is open for various special events at the DCTC throughout the school year.
Another focus for Workplace Readiness has been the dismantling and recycling of computer parts. Since the start of this school year, students have taken apart over 100 computers, separating the materials and delivering the raw materials to the recycling center.
Students also participate in a variety of activities such as: filling orders for classroom supplies, maintaining an office supply inventory, assisting with mailings for a local animal hospital, and scanning documents for 917 programs as well as the business office.
These activities offer students a hands-on opportunity to practice work skills, which they in turn can transfer to real world jobs and activities upon graduation.
