CAEP Integrated Education and Training (IET) Research Brief
The CAEP Technical Assistance Project (TAP) contracted with High Road Alliance (HRA) to listen to adult education practitioners about their experiences leading, building, and delivering IET programs, to glean lessons for the future of IET in California. This brief begins with a summary of the reasons providers offer IET, followed by an overview of the diversity of program structures, partnerships, occupations, and funding models seen among the providers who participated. The next section describes themes and promising practices that were heard during the interviews and listening sessions, related to each of the topics above. The brief concludes with recommendations drawn from the interviews and listening sessions to sustain and scale high-quality IET programs in California. Access the full report by clicking on the link.

This letter and the enclosed documents outlining data collection, reporting, and due dates for data deliverables are located in the Student Data Collection and Reporting section of the adult education website and will provide further clarification and details on program accountability requirements.
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.
