The Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) has reauthorized educational and workforce development policies. In the next couple of years, WIOA will require a shift in the delivery of adult education literacy instruction and workforce development. Today’s practitioners must align their programs to deliver cutting-edge services that will meet the demands of the 21st century global economy.
There are 3 key principles of WIOA:
- Program Alignment
- Increased Accountability
- Enhanced Service Delivery
One of the main priorities of WIOA is the implementation of College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) for Adult Education and Integrated English Literacy/Civics programs. The NYC RAEN committed to providing New York City adult education program providers with the most up to date aligned professional development available to meet the requirements of WIOA.
