A top priority of both the US and CA offices of adult education, Integrated Education and Training (IET) combines education in basic skills (i.e., ESL or ABE) with technical or occupational skills training, with the aim of expanding adult learners' educational and career advancement. The California Adult Literacy Professional Development Project (CALPRO) (www) is offering three professional learning opportunities related to IET, from a short introductory Webinar to more in-depth study.

  • Introductory Webinar: Integrating Basic Skills with Vocational Training: Four Models of IET
    Schedule: Tues., Jan. 29, 2013;  12 noon to 1 pm (60 min)

For agencies seeking a more in-depth professional learning experience, CALPRO is also offering a module on IET in two different formats, both of which have an application deadline of Feb. 1. In this module, agency-based teams of educators and agency administrators develop plans for implementing one of four instructional IET models. Enrollment is limited and on a first-applied, first enrolled basis.
