Integrated Education & Training (IET) is a promising practice based in
adult learning theory. Through IET programs, adults seek goal-oriented,
relevant, practical knowledge.
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 (WIOA) codified
an IET definition, and the July 2016 final regulations provide both
assurance and incentives for adult educators to design and implement
IET which, when paired with a sector focus and support services (+S),
rounds out a powerful career pathway model: IET+S.
Review the IET definition and guidance and explore a few of the many
adult education programs that have discovered the power of IET and,
through a variety of partnerships, have implemented the IET strategy to
serve people across the educational functioning level spectrum.
