Our Site at Goodwill Little Rock offers classes for students 18 and older. Students must first enroll and take the TABE test. Please call ahead to schedule an appointment and allow 3 hours for enrollment and the TABE test. You will need to bring your Arkansas Drivers License or ID and your social security card. From the results of the TABE test, your instructor can determine what skills you need to focus on.
Students may qualify to take the GED Ready test by scoring at 535 or more in reading or math on TABE test and following the Student Checklist for the GED. Once this qualification is met, you must pass the GED Ready Test with a 145 or higher in order to take the Official GED.

WAGE (Workforce Alliance for Growth in the Economy) is a training program intended to assist individuals with attaining marketable employment skills and to create a skilled workforce for employers. The areas of training include reading comprehension, English grammar, Mathematics, and computer literacy. We also stress personal employment skills, such as attitude, realistic goal-setting, timeliness, appearance, resume building and interviewing. While WAGE does not have job placement services, we also have a list of partners who recognize WAGE certificates in the hiring process.
Students may also enroll to improve basic skills without seeking a GED or WAGE certificate. Please make instructors aware of your goals.
