Work Ethics

The Work Ethics Program encourages students to develop positive work habits conducive to the needs of the workforce. In efforts to develop a viable and effective workforce, leaders in business and industry have identified ten essential work ethics traits that are taught and practiced at Augusta Technical College:

Attendance Cooperation
Character Communication
Respect Productivity
Organizational Skills Appearance
Teamwork Attitude

As Augusta Tech students interact in the classroom or lab, faculty monitors and documents their behavior using the Work Ethics Trait Behavior Documentation Form. A midterm report provides every student feedback about their work ethics performance. Students are issued a work ethics grade each semester for all courses attempted, and it holds equal importance for grades earned via technical skills.
