The award-winning series, GED Connection, is broadcast over UNC-TV each semester and helps adults prepare for the new General Educational Development (GED) test. Students learn to interpret and analyze reading passages, write clearly and effectively, and solve everyday problems in basic math and science. Settings and subject matter are taken from real life situations to help adults use the tools of a basic education to be better prepared for life at home and on the job.

The Emmy award-winning TV 411 series' mission is to help adults gain the basic reading, writing, math and science skills they need to achieve their educational, career, and personal goals. TV 411 Online features interactive lessons and articles that address money, parenting, people and health.

UNC-TV broadcasts the Workplace Essential Skills series several times throughout the year. Designed for adults who are looking for a job or want to improve their skills to get or keep a better job, Workplace Essential Skills shows what to expect from the application process, what skills and attributes employers look for, and how those skills are put to work in real on-the-job situations.

English as a Second Language (ESL) — ESL involves the teaching of English to speakers of other languages who live in a country where English is an official or important language. UNC-TV broadcasts Crossroads Café and other culturally diverse series each semester to teach English to speakers of other languages. These series blend cultural understanding and language skill building to depict the backgrounds, challenges and struggles that impact ESL learners in everyday work and home situations.
