ACP Program Development for Managers
Establishing adult career pathways is challenging, complex work. Minnesota’s ACP Program Development Cohort provides ABE managers with a facilitated, supported, year-long cohort as they work to create or strengthen a career pathway program in collaboration with WIOA partners in their localities.
In this article from the Summer 2018 edition of the COABE Journal, the rationale, design, and outcomes of this professional development activity are outlined. Key features include an experiential learning approach, a mix of face-to-face and online interaction and presentation, peer partners, coaching calls, goal-setting, and local action steps.
