Building and Growing Apprenticeship with Equity in Mind
This Toolkit, prepared for the Foundation for California Community Colleges by Jennie Mollica and Peter Simon of High Road Alliance (HRA), was created to help those whose work involves designing and running preapprenticeship and apprenticeship programs to intentionally encourage and support the inclusion of apprentices who reflect the full diversity of our communities — in terms of race, ethnicity, gender, primary language, disability, age, sexual orientation, and other factors. The purpose of this Toolkit is to encourage applying an equity lens to every aspect of preapprenticeship and apprenticeship program planning, design, staffing, outreach, delivery, evaluation, and improvement.
TDLS Call for Proposals
The call for TDLS proposals has opened! OTAN is looking for presentations that highlight technology, how it enhances the learner experience, extends the classroom to learners, and how technology integration helps adult education programs be more effective and efficient. OTAN's Technology and Distance Learning Symposium 2022, scheduled for Wednesday March 2 through Friday March 4.
Canvas Project Expansion
The California Adult Education Program is excited to work collaboratively with CAEP TAP and OTAN to expand the Canvas project to another 127 agencies later this year. While WIOA funded schools have priority due to the funding source, we are hopeful to add everyone. Because of this extension, we are glad to open the waitlist to all adult schools. If you have a mixed membership, encourage all agencies to sign up on the Canvas Expansion Waitlist.
