In adult education, individuals are often on career paths that lead directly from the instructional classroom to the administrative conference room without the benefit of essential leadership development. You may have been thrust into a leadership role at the state or local level, or have those aspirations. If so, you need a foundational knowledge of core skills to prepare you to LEAD.

The National Career Pathways Network offers comprehensive technical assistance and professional coaching for state and local adult education program teams and their partnering agencies. NCPN leverages its expertise to provide customized solutions in a supportive mentoring environment to meet your program’s unique needs.
