PCU Training Academies
Welcome to your virtual academy! Whether you are just beginning as a high school or college student, or are a veteran in the workforce, Pre-College University (PCU) “provides what you need to know before go”. When you become a member of our community you gain access to our catalog of virtual and online development curriculum that will help you learn the soft skills and career readiness skills needed to prepare for your next job or improve in your current position. We will also provide self-discovery assessments that will help identify strengths you may already possess as well as recognize opportunity areas to further develop. In addition to the quality learning and self-assessment experience, we provide a coach that will conduct one on one and group sessions. This coach can be assessable during your journey to landing your job and follow you through your first six months after you start.
Soft Skills Academy
We realize that Hard Skills primarily focusses on how well an employee understands the specifics in a particular position in the company. However, we believe having good “soft skills” can often be the determining factor of an employer’s decision to keep, develop, and promote an employee. At Pre-College University, we will teach you skills that will help you fit in at the workplace, maintain a coachable attitude, and work well with others.
Career Readiness Academy
Having a road map or a GPS app is critical when traveling on an unknown journey from point A to point B, then on to C and D. At Pre-College University we believe career readiness skills are essential for experiencing favorable outcomes on the career journey of success. We will teach you skills that will help you find and land a job as well as how to be promotable on the job.
Workforce Development Academy
Depending on who you ask, workforce development may have a plethora of definitions. Our hybrid approach to providing “workforce development” training will address several situations. Maybe you need assistance with making the right connection, managing a current position challenge, or improving in a specific skill. At Pre-College University, we will help you identify your specific need, and provide you with the support created specifically for you.
Environmental Justice Academy
PCU works with cohorts of interns whose interest and primary focus is environmental justice and activism. Collaboratively, and with a project funded by the Department of Energy’s Office of Legacy Management, PCU launched the Environmental Justice Academy for the purpose of introducing individuals to the field of Environmental Justice. These series of courses will provide inclusive, impactful, and innovative information aimed at creating leaders and activists around the country.
