Summit 2022 Registration is now open!
The CAEP Summit 2022 is ideal for the teachers, coordinators, administrators and support staff in the network of California adult education providers under the California Adult Education Program. This event will offer relevant and new information through dynamic presentations with emphasis on working creatively and collaboratively to respond to the current needs of adult learners and help ensure learners are well prepared for employment or further education.
CAEP Adult Dual Enrollment Brief
In late 2021, CAEP TAP contracted with High Road Alliance (HRA) to gather input from the field about the status of ADE today. This research brief captures lessons learned from adult education providers and community colleges who have promoted dual enrollment in adult education and credit-bearing college courses, to inform expanded use of the approach statewide. Drawing upon ten interviews, one peer learning circle attended by twenty-seven individuals, and engagement of an advisory group of experienced practitioners the brief also identifies challenges to implementing the promising strategy and recommendations to state policymakers and leaders to support its scaling to benefit greater numbers of California’s adult students.

California Adult Education Program

Building Partnerships that Count

Be Proud – California is Diverse. Just as our regional economies are diverse across California, so are the adult learners that live in, and contribute to, their communities. Because of this diversity, CAEP empowers 71 regional consortia to design innovations and best practices that align with the goals of adult learners; these innovations are in turn shared among consortium members and partner agencies, sparking a synergistic trading of ideas and a vibrant, growing body of knowledge.

The high quality programs and practices developed through the integration of K-12 adult education and community college resources on a regional level are uniquely suited to equip all available workers with the tools they need to contribute to California’s economic growth.

There are close to 400 CAEP members and more than 1,000 community partners within our 71 consortia that work synergistically through our multiple partner locations in every part of the state to create available access points for adult learners.
