The Accelerating Opportunity initiative is all about jobs, the economy, and improving opportunity for adults. This initiative is also helping drive economic recovery by helping adults get the credentials and skills they need to get and succeed in family-sustaining jobs. Kentucky’s vision is to implement a collaborative career pathways model that prepares students to be college and career ready.
Implementation of Accelerating Opportunity KY will begin fall semester 2013 at Somerset Community College. Pathways offered are Welding, Nursing Assistant and Culinary Arts.
