We received a number of questions during the webinar regarding the Perkins V State Plan submission timeline and the transition to Perkins V, generally. While we shared some of our preliminary ideas for transition during the webinar, the State Plan template and accompanying guidance will convey the Department’s final policies for transition, including timeline for implementation of Perkins V. The draft State Plan template will be available for review during the paperwork clearance process this Fall, which we will share when it is available. In the meantime, please submit any questions, concerns, or ideas regarding Perkins V transition to cte@ed.gov.

Free Resources for Apprenticeship & Work-based Learning

Wednesday, May 16, 2018
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EST

Register Here!

Community colleges and others engaged in career and technical education and training programs are thinking outside of the box when it comes to expanding apprenticeship programs across sectors, including health care, information technology, and manufacturing. To achieve this, colleges need tools and information that demonstrate both the process and the value of these programs. The SkillsCommons IMPACTcommunity provides a free "Apprenticeship Implementation Toolkit," which was developed by Missoula College-University of Montana, lead for the Montana HealthCARE (Creating Access to Rural Education) grant. In this webinar, participants will learn about the many resources included in this toolkit, such as sample registration documents, employer handouts, an Introduction to Pre-Apprenticeship guide, Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act resources, sample trade schedules for healthcare occupations, a standards template, and apprentice checklists, agreements, and consent forms.

The webinar will also showcase a step-by-step guide to establishing degree-bearing, competency-based, registered apprenticeship programs, which was developed by Great Falls College-Montana State University, lead for the Strengthening Workforce Alignment in Montana's Manufacturing and Energy Industries grant. In this webinar, participants will learn how to use this guide, as well as become familiar with the research conducted to develop it.

This webinar is the last in a webinar series showcasing strategies and resources developed by community colleges that are of broad interest to educational institutions engaged in career-focused education and training. Previous webinars (available as recordings) explored making industry experts into expert instructors to increase student success, scaling career pathways in Wisconsin, resources for developmental education using competency-based education, affordable learning solutions, and sustaining grant-funded projects for long-term success. For more information, please visit: Innovations Leading to Career Success Webinar Series.

The material featured here and the many resources available on SkillsCommons were produced by grantees of the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) program, a collaboration between the US Department of Labor and the US Department of Education.

Webinar on Sustaining Grant-funded Projects for Long-term Success

Wednesday, May 2, 2018
4:00 PM - 5:15 PM EST

Register Here!

In many grant-funded projects, funders and grantees often assume that the activities will continue when the grant is over. But for many, sustaining grant-funded efforts is elusive, and often becomes an exercise in finding the next grant. Fortunately, a host of strategies exist to maintain key aspects of funded projects. This webinar features four Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) community college grantees, who have continued their innovations through a variety of creative approaches.

In the webinar, three strategies for continuing grant-funded activities will be discussed, including ones to

  1. accelerate credential attainment;
  2. support program completion; and
  3. engage employers and align programs with labor market need.

The examples shared come from TAACCCT, but the approaches can work for anyone seeking to make a long-term impact with a grant-funded project. Speakers from four community colleges will describe how they continued and institutionalized their projects, as well as the challenges they faced. The audience will have time to ask questions and reflect on how the varying approaches might be applied to their own projects. Join us to help move your sustainability plans forward!

This webinar is part of a series showcasing strategies and resources developed by community colleges, which may interest institutions engaged in career-focused education and training. The final webinar in the series, on May 16, is "Free Resources for Apprenticeship & Work-based Learning." Previous topics (available as recordings) explored (1) making industry experts into expert instructors to increase student success, (2) scaling career pathways in Wisconsin, and (3) resources for developmental education using competency-based education.
