Teaching Workplace Competency to Special Populations

To meet an identified community need, College of DuPage has created the Vocational Skills Program, offering courses to students challenged with mild to moderate cognitive impairment. The courses are developmental-level, non-transferable credit courses designed to develop vocational skills that can lead to competitive, entry-level employment and enhance everyday living skills. We offer courses that meet two days a week, two hours a day for eight weeks on campus in Glen Ellyn, satellite campuses, and at community-based locations. The students are integrated into the College of DuPage campus life by being supported through the student services that are afforded to all COD students.
