How Blue Ridge supports adult learners

Kirsten H. Bunch

Continuing your education as an adult learner can open up so many doors. Whether your goal is to increase your marketable skills to be considered for a promotion or make a career change, earning additional credentials can present endless opportunities in your life.

There’s never been a better time to go back to school, whether part time or full time. Blue Ridge is offering free college this academic year. We also have more resources for adult learners than ever before, including our new success coaches. And Blue Ridge offers all of the great credentials that are needed in our community’s current workforce.

Despite the advantages of continuing one’s education, there are unique challenges adult learners may face. We recognize that adult learners come to us with an already “full plate.” Work, family, financial and home obligations—the list is endless. Adult learners have many competing priorities that take up their time. It can be a true juggling act to add college into the mix.
