CTAS has partnered with the Tennessee Language Center (TLC), an agency of the Institute for Public Service, to provide a language services program for county officials - the Language Collaborative for County Officials. This program provides FREE language services to county officials across Tennessee. CTAS will sponsor county officials' participation in or use of language services and classes offered by our sister agency, TLC.
TLC offers language classes in 9 languages including Spanish and Arabic. These classes are offered in 9-week terms for 2 hours a week. There are 4 terms a year and encompass all skill levels from beginner to more advanced.
County government employees are eligible to take any of the classes for FREE. Many of TLC's classes are online in real-time, and available across Tennessee with several in-person options for those in the Nashville area. Classes generally meet once a week for 2 hours for 9 weeks.
