||Join CAEP TAP and High Road Alliance to participate in a new effort to identify and elevate effective practices, challenges, and opportunities related to the implementation of Integrated Education and Training (IET) in California. IET is defined in WIOA regulations as, “...a service approach that provides adult education and literacy activities concurrently and contextually with workforce preparation activities for a specific occupation or occupational cluster for the purpose of educational and career advancement” (34 CFR §463.35). There are numerous examples of successful IET programs in California, and a rich array of training and technical assistance is available to support IET development. Still, more could be done to increase the impact of IET for the benefit of our adult education students and the State’s workforce and economic prosperity. By listening to the stories of adult education instructors, counselors, administrators, and regional leaders, CAEP TAP aims to learn what are the elements of effective IET programs, how these elements are combined in program models that could be replicated and scaled to serve higher numbers of adult students, and what professional development resources are needed to support college and adult school educators to deliver IET. This listening session will cover the following questions: How have you engaged industry and local employers in your IET programs? How have you leveraged the public workforce system? How have you facilitated students’ transition to employment or further training?
