In partnership with education provider Pearson, Manpower associates will have access to online GED preparation courses, practice tests, and personal coaching support from application through graduation, enabling them to earn their high school equivalency diploma within weeks. The GED program is an extension of ManpowerGroup’s MyPath offering, which helps people access jobs in growth sectors and develop in their careers through fast-track learning programs, on-the-job training, certification, and experience.
