Welcome to the LINCS College and Career Standards Group.

The College and Career Standards Group is a community of practice for adult education practitioners, community colleges, career and technical training organizations, business and industry, and others to explore policies, practices, and issues in using standards to prepare adults for college and careers.

This group shares information, research, expertise, and resources that assist states and programs to identify, develop or update, and implement adult basic education (ABE) standards that help prepare adult learners for success in higher education and training programs.

Topics discussed include the critical skills and knowledge that colleges, universities, and employers expect from incoming students and employees.

Become more informed, get involved, and be inspired! Share your knowledge with the College and Career Standards Group and help advance our field of practice.
