The goal of Integrated Education and Training (IET) and IET for Integrated English Literacy and Civics Education (IELCE) is to help adult education students obtain employment or continue in post-secondary training programs. This goal has proven to be more challenging for many IET/IELCE providers during the pandemic as employer partners may no longer have jobs available due to the pandemic, or they may have changed hiring policies and procedures. In addition, working with other partners who are needed to help learners make transitions to employment and/or post-secondary training may also be troublesome as many people are working remotely. This session will focus on sharing ideas that have worked, troubleshooting, and problem-solving.
Integrated Education and Training (IET) and IET for Integrated English Literacy and Civics Education (IELCE) instructors must work with partners to help learners obtain employment or continue in other training programs. This webinar will focus on ways to help learners take next steps; give ideas for working with employer, workforce, or training partners; and provide strategies for taking next steps during the pandemic. Participants will also have opportunities to share their best practices and problem-solve challenges for helping learners take next steps and make successful transitions. A final activity of the webinar will be to develop a work plan for helping learners with transitions. Information presented will also be applicable to future IET/IELCE programming.
