Introduction to Adult Career Pathways Workshop
The Adult Career Pathways (ACP) workshop is designed as a one-day professional development program for community college administrators, faculty, and staff to find solutions to problems that prevent many citizens from obtaining the education that today’s workplace demands. The workshop challenges participants to work together in their communities to provide the leadership necessary to create an ACP system. Workshop participants will learn through practical strategies and examples that will help them draft a plan for local implementation.
Each workshop topic includes background information and statistics, active discussion, and group work designed to help participants develop their ACP plan:
