Title V Osceola - College to Careers

Goals

The College to Careers program at the Valencia College Osceola campus aligns with two major facets of the college's overall strategic goals: Build Pathways and Partner with the Community.

There are three main goals within the grant:

First, through the use of Title V funds from the U.S. Department of Education, the Valencia College Osceola campus will work to find new and innovative pathways to make education more accessible for students, especially the county's largely Hispanic population. This work includes:

  • translation of marketing materials into Spanish.
  • new and improved means of financial aid access.
  • new and innovative methods of course delivery.
  • new and improved methods of maintaining contact with prospective and new students.
  • improved methods of class scheduling to better utilize campus facilities and to increase course offerings.

Second, through the use of Title V Grant funds from the U.S. Department of Education, the Valencia Osceola campus will increase opportunities for our students to gain the skills needed to become contributors to the economic stability of Central Florida, and of Osceola County in particular. We are actively working with community and local business partners to develop the direction two new career and technical programs at the Osceola campus will take.

Tied to the first two goals is a third set of goals: increasing the number of students who complete our career and technical certificate programs by 10% by September 2020 and increasing the number of students who apply previously earned credits toward Valencia A.S. degree programs by 10% by September 2020. We anticipate many of these students will come from our partner institutions, such as the School District of Osceola County's TECO facility.
