New IET in Corrections project: Orientation Webinar on February 22nd

The Integrating Education and Training (IET) in Corrections project, funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE), is pleased to announce a series of technical assistance activities available for states and local program staff to engage in over the next two years.

This project is designed to support the development of IET programs in correctional facilities. As a first step, the project is launching a virtual learning series that is open to all correctional education stakeholders and will provide an overview of IET programs, federal and state requirements, and corrections-specific considerations. Examples of IET programs in correctional settings will also be shared. The virtual learning series will begin with an orientation webinar on February 22nd from 4-5pm ET. Registration is now open.

Four additional webinars will be offered in March 2021, covering topics such as readiness for IET planning and special considerations for developing IET programs in jails and prisons. Stay tuned to the IET in Corrections thread in the Correctional and Reentry Education group on LINCS for additional announcements!
