The Teaching and Training Academy, formerly known as the Early Childhood and Elementary Education program at AACT, has undergone significant curriculum changes and is headed by a new educator, Dena Locke. The students who are involved in this academy learn employability skills, developmental theories, social psychology, ethics, legal policies and safety along with self-exploration, in order to be prepared to succeed in a multitude of career fields, including the following: education, healthcare, psychology, social work, pathology and audiology. Through the level one Teaching and Training course, students will be able to develop talents in others and learn how to work with youth of different ages. The skills acquired can be used toward many career fields.
