Developing a Basic Skills Curriculum for IET

This guide is the primary resource for the basic skills training. It is designed to enable Title II providers and their training partners to adapt existing curriculum and/or develop new basic skills curriculum to help adult education students successfully complete occupational skills training and move forward on a career path. It focuses on the development of basic skills curriculum, not occupational skill training curriculum. This guide has been informed by preexisting curricula in FIT 4 Manufacturing; FIT 4 Healthcare; Emergency Medical Technician; and Mechanical Components: Mechanical Maintenance, Level 1 developed by Pennsylvania College of Technology; and other IET-related programs, such as Accelerating Opportunity, PluggedInVA, Work Attributes Towards Careers in Health (WATCH), and Elgin Community College Courses. It provides resources and tools that will help practitioners plan, design, and implement the basic skills component of an IET curriculum.
