Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for today's webinar, From Policy to Practice: Designing Career Pathways for ABE/ESL Learners. If you would like a copy of the webinar, please email myself, or David Rosen at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will notify everyone once the recording is made available on the LINCS YouTube page, later this fall.
Our presenters shared excellent information on career pathways for Adult Basic Education and English as a Second Language learners, from the federal, state, and local levels. Our presenters included:
Today, and for the next three days, our presenters will be answering your questions, and sharing more of their knowledge and experience with creating career pathways for this population. We encourage you to ask questions, as well as share your own experience, in order to gain a new perspective on how to create greater career pathways opportunities for learners.
Several of today's webinar attendees asked questions that we want to address:
- How does a program identify specific job-related activities?
- How important is it to teach soft skills within ABE classes?
- Is a Career Navigator an ABE or Workforce partner employee?
To put these questions in context, I wonder if our panelists would start by responding with what they see as especially beneficial to ABE and ESL career pathways learners under WIOA legislation? This seems important to informing the logistics questions that we all have about making these programs stronger, and more widely available, for the learners who need them.
