If you have questions regarding the new system or need assistance, please reach out by submitting your question to the AEBG Office and AEBG Technical Assistance Project (TAP)  using this form .

You can now access services, by program area, for each consortium and each member within a consortium through the AEBG Services Directory, which is accessible below and via the AEBG homepage. This is a great collaboration tool in that it allows you to easily see which other consortia or members offer similar services and can also be shared with prospective students who want to know more about programs offered within their community.

Friday (12/1) Webinar: AEBG Consortium-Level Administrative Oversight Requirement

Dec. 8 Webinar: AEBG Pre-Apprenticeship

Time: 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. 

Description:  Join Neil Kelly and the California Apprenticeship TAP Team (Josh Modlin and Tim Aldinger) to learn about apprenticeship programs in California. The webinar will address the following questions: How does AEBG pre-apprenticeship connect or link with existing apprenticeship training programs? What should be the standards of your AEBG pre-apprenticeship program? Who is doing this well in the field? How can we expand pathways into apprenticeship training programs to include AEBG students? 

Dec. 13 Webinar: Digital Badges

Visit the AEBG Webinars page for participant details and other information.

All regional profiles have now been distributed to consortia for review. Requested changes are due no later than Dec. 1 via the forms embedded within the regional profiles, as profiles will go live Dec. 4. No response to the request for review will be considered as an approval.

The profiles are part of the  Educate & Elevate California campaign to tell the story of the impact that AEBG is having by highlighting individual student and employer success stories, consortium innovations and data and results - and to ensure that this information reaches stakeholders in a strategic, coordinated manner.

From initial planning meetings and conversations among members of the Stanislaus Mother Lode Adult Education Consortium (Yosemite), it became clear that teachers across the region had developed different understandings of college and career readiness standards (CCRS) and curricular approaches. The consortium conducted professional development surveys and assessments among the region's adult school and college instructors to gather information that would help it organize a common training for instructors from the 15 consortium member districts and area nonprofits. The goal was to encourage deeper conversations among the members about how to improve adult learning in the region.
