Adult Ed Conference, October 2015

The Annual RI Adult Education Conference was held October 1st at New England Tech’s new East Greenwich campus.  The event was a great success, according to onsite evals, and an online follow up survey to participants.   Twenty-four workshops and panels were offered by practitioners from across the state for 155 participants. Our goal is to keep the annual event at NEIT in the Fall, but may have a conflict with Fall 2016, due to construction...stay tuned!

RI Resource Hub - Career Pathways

The RI Resource Hub has been highlighted in a report from a fall federal monitoring visit review of the Statewide Longitudinal Data System grant which funded the buildout.  They recommended that the state spread the cost of maintaining it into annual state department budgets!  A new grant has been acquired to work closely with the Governor’s Workforce Board to build out a Career Pathways component on the RIRH.  This work has to be completed by July 2016.
