Exploring Pathways to Leadership
A New Era of Excellence in Adult Education
Adult educators often follow career paths that lead directly from the instructional classroom to the administrative conference room without the benefit of essential leadership development. If this describes your path, NCPN can help you acquire the core skills that will enable you to LEAD. NCPN offers comprehensive technical assistance and professional coaching for state and local adult education program teams and their partnering agencies. NCPN leverages its expertise to provide customized solutions in a supportive mentoring environment to meet your program’s unique needs.
