The SABES Program Support PD Center is a project of the US Division at World Education, Inc. in Boston, MA. Our team works in responsive and inclusive ways to develop and deliver PD that transforms practice, fosters continuous improvement, and creates opportunities for innovation. The PSPDC provides training in eight content areas, aiming for coherence and complementary strengths across these priorities:

COABE Journal

We are excited to offer Massachusetts adult educators with free access to the COABE Journal! To access each issue, please click on the link to complete a brief form that confirms you are a Massachusetts adult educator: 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We continue our commitment to anti-racism, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). We encourage you to access the DEI Resources we have posted that are specific to our priority areas, as well as the larger SABES system DEI Resource Library


We are also pleased to be authorized to issue Professional Development Points (PDPs). Please contact Luanne_teller@worlded.org if you are interested in more information about PDPs for eligible professional development offerings.
