Abstract: Adult learners are getting a jump start on their careers through Integrated Education and Training (IET) programs that integrate adult basic education and postsecondary training for in-demand occupations like behavioral health specialist, CNC machinist, and medical assistant. This session will provide an opportunity to hear from a panel of leaders who have collaborated on the implementation of IET programs. The panel will include representation from adult basic education (WIOA Title II), Arizona@Work (WIOA Title I), and career and technical education. Panelists will share their perspectives on what is valuable and what is challenging when partnering to implement career pathways programming such as IETs. Participants will learn strategies for identifying strong career pathways, developing shared goals, clarifying roles, and ongoing program development and evaluation.
