"Improving the Quality of Life Through Education“
Region 6 Adult Education Department (AED) is the lead agency for the Gulf Coast Workforce Board/Houston-Galveston Area Council (HGAC). We oversee the implementation of adult education services provided through the 13 counties of the Gulf Coast Workforce Board/Houston-Galveston Area Council (HGAC). We also work in collaboration with and receive funding from the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) to provide support in various career pathway models: Integrated Education and Training (IET), Integrated El Civics (IET for ELLs), Intensive Services, Transition to Postsecondary Education, etc., as well as with Texas Center for the Advancement of Literacy and Learning (TCALL), and Brazos Valley Council of Governments (BVCOG).
The Adult Education Department at Region 6 administers the official GED© test along with various other assessments.
Our consortium provides these services to ensure that our participants obtain the necessary skills and/or education certification needed to become more employable, productive, and responsible citizens.
