Pod Cast: Inspiring Educators So Adults Succeed and Communities Thrive
“Our goal is to work with the teachers and administrators, provide them with the tools and skills that they need to then work with the adult learners. Here is how the WIOA Adult Education system prepares these adult learners for family-sustaining levels of employment:
• fortifies critical academic skills
• integrates instruction with workplace essential skills and in-demand job training
• provides English Language instruction and citizenship classes
• prepares adults in High School Equivalency (HSE)
The emphasis is building a strong base of basic skills that adult learners can build on. COABE offers more than 75 webinars annually to help educators develop their teaching programs for adult learners." Listen to the full pod cast here or learn more about COABE.
