IET, according to WIOA regulations, is “…a service approach that provides adult education and literacy activities concurrently and contextually with workforce preparation activities and workforce training for a specific occupation or occupational cluster for the purpose of educational and career advancement.” So why IET? How do we interpret and operationalize the intentions of the regulations? How do I create an IET program that fits my particular context and students? How can IET programs be funded? How does IET fit into adult career pathways? The tools and reference materials on this site will help answer many of these questions and guide you in setting the foundation for best practices in integrated education and training.
This toolkit provides WIOA partners with guidance and resources for implementing the six key elements of career pathways.
