RALEIGH, N.C. (December 1, 2014) ­ Wake Technical Community College is preparing to open a larger, more accessible center for adult education, just north of the Raleigh beltline. The Beltline Education Center, located at 3200 Bush Street in Raleigh, will open in January. Programs currently offered at the Adult Education Center (AEC) on Capital Boulevard will move to the new facility and the AEC will close.
 

“This is an optimal location,” says Wake Tech President Dr. Stephen Scott, “that will extend our reach and enhance our programming. We’ll be able to offer courses and programs that are in high demand in a more convenient setting, to serve more people.” 

 

The Beltline Education Center will house Wake Tech’s College and Career Readiness programs, which include High School Equivalency Preparation (GED preparation), Adult High School, English as a Second Language, and Adult Basic Education (ABE/TOPS) for students with intellectual disabilities. The center will also include a new Advanced Manufacturing training facility, a non-credit cosmetology school, and administrative functions for Wake Tech’s Workforce Continuing Education division. 

 

Wake Tech will lease the 81,000-square-foot building, which offers easy access to major thoroughfares and ample parking. The new facility will allow the college to better serve community needs for education and training.

 

The Adult Education Center, which opened in 1991, will close on December 19, the end of fall semester.
