Message from the Principal

 

South San Francisco Adult Education is part of the ACCEL consortium - a coalition of adult schools, community colleges and partners throughout San Mateo County - that is rethinking and redesigning Adult Education to accelerate student success. South San Francisco Adult Education has developed a schedule of classes that will support our mission of providing adult students with the skills to advance their education, employment, and success.  These classes include Adult Secondary Education, varied levels of English as a Second language, Career Technical Education, and Community Based Education.  If you have enjoyed learning with us in the past, we look forward to your return.  If you have not taken the opportunity to enrich your skills and your life, now is the time to enroll at South San Francisco Adult Education.

 

Congratulations to Adult Ed Class of 2017

2017 Job Fair

SSF Adult Education hosted our annual Job Fair last May 10, 2017. The successful event included 21 different organizations and was attended by over 100 students including our very own ESL and High School Diploma students, Baden High School students, Jefferson Adult School students, and community members. Many of those who attended were not only able to network with a variety of different companies but were offered the opportunity to interview, or even obtain employment! This event would not have been possible without the participation of all the organizations and their representatives which included: Comcast, Molly Maid, Synergy Homecare, New South Parking, Swissport, Embassy Suites, McDonald's, FedEx, Target, ChildCare Careers, Select Staffing, Big 5 Sporting Goods, CDS, Sky Chefs, Skyline College, Spark Point, Full Steam Staffing, IHSS Care Givers, Pick-Up Stix, USPS, and South West Greens.

Thank you GENENTECH and to all the Hands on Bay Area volunteers!

SSF Adult Education & Skyline College partner to provide Hospitality & Tourism Management Adult School Bridge Experience

 

The Hospitality Advance class was a free non-credit class offered this Fall 2016 to our Intermediate Low and Intermediate High English classes as a supplement to their regular English classes. The 8 week class is designed especially  for non-native English speakers and is perfect for those students who are interested in working within the Hospitality industry (front desk receptionist at a hotel, restaurant manager, host/hostess, tour guide, concierge, flight attendant, etc.). Students who attend this class on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10am-12pm students are able to develop confidence in their English, expand their cultural awareness, and learn to communicate effectively in a hospitality environment. This semester 39 students received a certificate of completion from Hospitality Advance and had the option of continuing on to the for-credit classes of HTM 124 (Excellence in Service) and HTM 125 (Restaurant/Banquet Operations).

2016 Adult Education Job Fair

Our Adult Education Job Fair was held on May 11,2016 and attended by over 130 adult learners from South San Francisco, Jefferson, and San Mateo Adult Schools and graduating seniors from Baden High School.  The employers in attendance were: Comcast, Cintas, AT&T, Macy’s, Embassy Suites SFO, Marriot SFO, Airserv, New South Parking, Aegis, Synergy Home Care, Molly Maid, and Instawork.  The feedback from the employers was very positive and they were impressed with the job fair turnout.  Each of the employers had a list of student names to forward for interviews!  Thank you to the Adult-Education College and Career Leadership (ACCEL), which is the consortium of Adult Schools and San Mateo Community College District,  for sponsoring our job fair.
