A multi-step screening and intake process may help determine which learners are ready to commit to a rigorous IET program.
- Application form
- References from community members
- Writing sample (may also be used to ask about motivations for applying)
- Intake assessment (e.g., TABE, CASAS)
- Career interest inventory (e.g., VaWizard, CareerScope)
- Orientation session(s)
- Learner commitment form
- Informal or formal counseling to identify learner challenges and barriers to completion and brainstorm solutions
- Referrals to support services and/or other adult education programming if appropriate
Arrange for supportive services representatives to attend an intake or orientation session to work with learners at the site for greater efficiency and a higher likelihood of form completion.
Contact information for local field offices for each service may be found here and available in the local Career Works Centers.
