I-BEST/Career Training

I-BEST/Career Training

I-BEST uses team-teaching to help students quickly get the literacy, work, and college-readiness skills they need to move through school and into living wage jobs faster.

I-BEST students work with two teachers in the classroom: one provides job training and the other teaches basic skills in reading, math, or English language. Students get the help they need while studying for the career of their choice; they learn by doing.

I-BEST students can improve their English, math, and computer skills while they learn college-level content and earn credits toward a certificate or degree.

South Seattle College offers I-BEST classes in CNC Machining, Automotive Maintenance Technology, and Welding Fabrication Technology. 

 

Our current I-BEST programs are:
