IELCE Resources to Support Immigrant Integration and Inclusion

The Enhancing Access for Refugees and New Americans (EARN) project aims to support adult educators in developing and delivering high-quality Integrated English Literacy and Civics Education (IELCE)/Integrated Education and Training (IET) programming in alignment with an immigrant integration approach.

Enhancing Access Spotlights describe and provide examples of specific aspects of IELCE/IET implementation. One such spotlight, Serving Internationally Trained Professionals in IELCE Activities, details how adult education programs can leverage IELCE activities to serve Internationally Trained Professionals (ITPs). ITPs frequently attend adult education programs; they often take English language acquisition classes or participate in IELCE activities. This spotlight shares promising practices that programs can use to support ITPs in applying their skills to navigate career pathways and to achieve economic integration.

EARN has also released an Expanding the Use of Online Resources in IELCE Activities to Support Immigrant Integration and Inclusion guide. Many online instructional resources, including curricula, courses, and tools, can be used to help English learners strengthen their language skills, improve their digital literacy, and navigate life in the United States. One such resource is USA Learn's Access America course as it addresses key civics content and employability skills and contextualizes EL instruction with immigrant integration concepts.

These and other resources can be found at

Host a Community of Practice: Supporting Student Transition to Postsecondary Education and the Workforce

The California Department of Education (CDE) and the California Adult Literacy Professional Development Project (CALPRO) are pleased to introduce our newest Community of Practice (CoP) on Supporting Student Transitions to Postsecondary Education and the Workforce.


The goal of this community of practice is to support adult learners’ postsecondary and workforce transitions by building consortia and adult education program staff’s capacity to implement evidence-based practices that facilitate the transitions, including identifying ways to enhance support services, program structures, and local partnerships.

This community of practice is designed for teams of adult education staff—including consortia directors, program administrators, instructional leaders, and counseling/student service staff—who are responsible for building partnerships for career and academic pathways and implementing initiatives for successful postsecondary and workforce transitions. The goal is to support consortia and programs to implement the strategies learned in their postsecondary and workforce transition efforts.

If you are interested in hosting this CALPRO CoP for your consortium/region, please contact [email protected]
