Overview: The National Adult Education Professional Development Consortium (NAEPDC), CLASP, the Center for Law and Social Policy, and the Commission on Adult Basic Education (COABE) have teamed up to find examples of how states and local areas are implementing the integrated education and training (IET) model in the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act, including how IET is provided under the Integrated Education and Training English Literacy and Civics program. 

IET models have been implemented through different designs for years through initiatives such as I-BEST (Washington State), Accelerate Texas, Minnesota Fast Trac, Mi BEST (Mississippi), and the Integrated Career and Academic Preparation System (ICAPS) in Illinois.

Objective: Results from this survey are intended to support the implementation of IET in areas where efforts are just underway and to share practices with those already implementing. Results submitted may be used in publications (after permission is received), to support professional development efforts supported by the NAEPDC, and to support the development of future guidance and policy.  

Instructions:  This survey is designed for local adult education programs to complete. Please complete as much of the survey as you are able and skip questions for which you do not have information. Providers with IET programs in multiple occupations may repeat the survey . State program staff may complete this with information from local programs.

If you have multiple IET programs to share, this survey can be repeated.

The survey includes questions you may not be fully prepared to answer without some preparation. If you prefer to prepare responses for the survey prior to completing the survey, you may do so by downloading the questions here: (Note: This is a copy of the survey and responses cannot be entered into this sample.)

We are eager to learn where the country is in developing this critical service delivery approach for under-skilled students. 

Thank you,
