The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education convened the Integrated Education and Training (IET) Symposium to address a range of topics concerning adult education providers. Key points included:

  • State and federal agency support would help IET service development and delivery.
  • Adult education providers can facilitate learners’ success by helping them determine whether enrollment in IET services is a good match for their skills, interests, and abilities.
  • Adult education providers’ work with public and private sector employers can be facilitated through coordinated efforts with training and postsecondary education partners.
  • Adult education providers are central to the expansion of IET services and will need a range of supports to be successful.
