Event Details

This four-month training is provided by faculty from LaGuardia Community College’s GED Bridge to College and Careers Program in partnership with the National College Transition Network and New England Literacy Resource Center, both part of World Education. Contextualized basic skills instruction introduces key terms and concepts in a general career field, like healthcare or business, through activities designed to build numeracy and literacy skills. Participants will explore best practices in career focused basic skills instruction and develop innovative course materials that meet program goals and build skills required in college and the workplace.  Designed for teams of 2 GED or high level ESOL teachers per program, the training blends 2 institutes, 2 webinars, coaching, and a virtual community of practice.  The trainers’ time is underwritten by MetLife Foundation.

  • Informational webinar for New England programs: March 21, 2-3:30 pm
  • New England kick-off institute:  August 1-2 at World Education, Boston

Preliminary findings by MDRC from a random assignment evaluation of LaGuardia’s Bridge Programs indicate the Bridge students are passing the GED and transitioning to college at higher rates than their counterparts in other GED preparation programs.
