Smith Adult Community Education (ACE) provides lifelong learners with opportunities to develop hands-on skills and knowledge for employment or just for the fun of it. Instructors are professionals and work as artisans, business owners, educators and masters of their trade. Their enthusiasm is contagious as they share their expertise teaching evening classes and technical workshops.
Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School is an invaluable and incredible resource for both high school students and the local community. The technical/vocational shops are equipped with millions of dollars’ worth of equipment to prepare students to step into a new career.
Each calendar year, MA businesses with 100 or fewer employees may apply for grant funds up to $30,000/company and $3,000/employee/course through the Workforce Training Fund Express Program. If the request is approved, after the course is completed WTFP will reimburse you for up to 50% of the cost of training for employees who are on your company’s payroll and work in MA. Many of our courses are eligible for this employer funding.
