Addressing the Accessibility of the One-Stop Delivery System for Individuals who are English Language Learners

Florida’s adult education programs offer adult English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) instruction for adults to improve written and spoken English skills. This program assists customers in improving academic skills to provide a path to earning a high school credential, entering postsecondary education and improving individual career options. Florida’s one-stop career center partners collaborate to provide quality services, resources and referrals to job seekers with limited English-speaking skills. The FDBS pays for interpreter services to assist job seekers with the vocational rehabilitation process. Program forms are also available in Spanish.
