New EARN Training Opportunities and IET for English Learners Desk Aids

Today, in recognition of National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week, the U.S. Department of Education’s Enhancing Access for Refugees and New Americans (EARN) project team is pleased to announce the availability of new training opportunities and desk aids to complement the Integrated Education and Training (IET) Design Toolkit

The EARN team has developed four trainings to support adult educators in serving English learners (ELs). 

  • Using IELCE Activities to Promote Civic Readiness and Connections to Citizenship (75 mins.)
  • Contextualizing Instruction in IELCE Activities (3 hours)
  • Forming and Operating Effective Partnerships for Immigrant Integration (2 hours)
  • Serving Internationally Trained Professionals (1 hour)

The IET for English Learners Desk Aids provide information and tools for adult educators to use in designing IET programs for ELs.  The Desk Aids are currently available on LINCS and can be accessed directly using the links below.

EARN is able to deliver these training virtually to a limited number of states upon state request. Email EARN@rti.org to learn more. 

Happy #AEFLWeek!
