COABE Webinar: Be the Key That Opens Students - Career Pathways are Lifelines for Them the Door for Your

The Coalition of Adult Basic Education has posted its January 23 webinar -- Be the Key That Open the Door for Your Students - Career Pathways are Lifelines for Them - for public access.

COABE's introduction:

This webinar explores the numerous ways career pathways can be designed and implemented to comply with WIOA regulations. From bridge programs to Integrated Education and Training (IET), the components that contribute to successful programs will be discussed, including understanding employer measures and using Labor Market Information (LMI) to build -or enhance-your career pathways program.

Learn how to incorporate strategies for adult career pathways into your instructional program using contextualized curriculum. This webinar will define specific lessons, strategies, and activities that can be implemented in your classrooms to give your students the career counseling they missed when they left school. You are their career counselor.

WIOA expanded the purpose of Title II to include assisting adults to transition to postsecondary education and training leading to employment. Adult educators are tasked to develop and deliver adult career pathways systems that will successfully transition low-skilled adults to postsecondary education and employment. Our classrooms are now a place where students learn not only the academics for credential success but also the workforce skills for career success.
