November 2019 Community Highlights

November was a quiet month in the Career Pathways Community, but we had several members taking courses through the Learning Portal who shared comments.

ACP: Developing Effective Bridge Programs (2.5 hours): Are you a teacher beginning to develop a bridge program for your adult education learners? This course helps teachers develop and implement effective Adult Career Pathways bridge programs designed to help adult learners master the basic skills they need to advance to the next level of education, training, or entry-level employment in career fields that are in local or regional demand. This course features three modules: (1) Understanding Bridge Programs; (2) Laying the Foundation; and (3) Developing the Curriculum.

Introduction to Workforce Preparation and Employability Skills (1.5 hours): This course is designed for adult educators, administrators, teachers, and advisors who seek an introduction to the general concept of workforce preparation and the specific skills outlined in the U.S. Department of Education’s Employability Skills Framework. Participants should expect to learn what constitutes the workforce preparation activities referenced in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA); explain how to integrate workforce preparation activities into adult education programming and instruction; and locate resources you can use to develop and incorporate workforce preparation activities into curriculum and instruction. This course is the first in a two-part series exploring workforce preparation skills. The second course is Workforce Preparation Activities in the Classroom: Contextualizing Employability Skills for Deeper Learning.
