The COABE Journal recently published, Strengthening Adult Career Pathways in Minnesota: A Professional Development Cohort for Managers. Below is the abstract for the piece:
Establishing adult career pathways is challenging, complex work. In Minnesota, a new professional development initiative provides ABE managers with a facilitated, supported, yearlong cohort as they work to create or strengthen a career pathway program in collaboration with WIOA partners in their localities. In this article, the rationale, design, and outcomes of this professional development activity are outlined. Key features include an experiential learning approach, a mix of face-to-face and online interaction and presentation, peer partners, coaching calls, goal-setting, and local action steps.
I'm interested to hear what our members in Minnesota have to say about this professional development format. How has this experience changed your approach to thinking about career pathways, and working with local WIOA partners?
