We know that getting used to the new "normal" hasn't been easy. Lingering post-pandemic changes and new challenges with getting students credentialed can affect your program and hamper student achievements.
On the bright side, with challenges come opportunities.
We at GED Testing Service have served our CA Adult Education partners and adult learners for over 70 years, and we've upped our game considerably in the past several years. We have new tools, improved systems and connections with employers to help AE programs and students be prepared for today's workforce.
Now's the perfect time to explore how the GED program can help make the learning experience better than ever. We'd love to hear from you!
The Employment Development Department (EDD), in coordination with the California Labor and Workforce Development Agency (LWDA), announces the availability of up to $18 million from the State of California General Fund for the English Language Learner (ELL) Integrated Education and Training (IET) Fund Program Year (PY) 2022-23 Solicitation for Proposal (SFP).
The goal of this SFP is to support new or existing projects that incorporate an IET program model to prepare ELLs for in-demand, high quality jobs with sustainable wages. The grant focuses on utilizing sector-based strategies to develop new IET course offerings in partnership with employers and education providers, and utilizing documented best practices and evidence-based strategies to support ELLs with full wrap around services through their participation. Through this program, ELLs will obtain occupational skills for living wage jobs within in-demand industries in the project service areas.
