Published on


Learn how faculty and staff from LaGuardia Community College’s adult education and career training departments have taken lessons learned from Washington’s I-BEST model and developed five professional health-care certification programs that are effectively helping adult basic education and ELL students earn credentials necessary to begin a new career. The success of LaGuardia’a integrated model is a result of the unique instructional environment resulting from the collaboration between occupational and basic skills instructors and a comprehensive program, the approach to professional and curriculum development, lessons learned, outcomes to date and implications for scaling up. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the applicability to this health care career training model in their own workplace and educational setting.
