Opportunity for Free Career Navigator Training through Department of Education Study

The U.S. Department of Education is sponsoring the Connecting Adults to Success Study – and we are recruiting adult education providers to receive free training and participate in the study!

This study will examine whether training for career navigators increases adult learners’ further education, employment, and earnings. Forty providers are already receiving free training through this study and there is still time to enroll. Adult education providers that participate in the study receive a free, nationally recognized training for their staff who provide career navigation services. The training is designed to help staff develop core competencies to guide learners as they explore and plan for college, training, or jobs. All providers will receive the training in either spring 2023 or spring 2025, and a lottery will determine the timing of training.

We are looking for adult education providers that currently have staff with dedicated time spent on career navigation services and want to offer enhanced training to these staff. To learn more and get involved, please contact Ariella Spitzer at AdultEdStudy@mathematica-mpr.com or fill out this two minute interest form by October 31, 2022.
