from U.S. Department of Ed Office of Vocational & Adult Education‘s:

The Illinois Community College Board has released a step-by-step guide, How to Build Bridge Programs That Fit Into a Career Pathway, which provides information on how to develop successful bridge programs to tap the talents of low-skilled adults. The guide is based on the achievements of Carreras en Salud, a health care bridge program created by Chicago’s Instituto del Progreso Latino and its partners, the National Council of La Raza, Association House of Chicago, and Humboldt Park Vocational Education Center of Wilbur Wright College. This partnership was supported by the Illinois Community College Board, the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, and the Joyce Foundation as part of its multi-year, multi-million dollar state policy initiative, Shifting Gears. That initiative is re-engineering adult education, workforce development and postsecondary education policies to expand job opportunities for low-skilled workers in six Midwestern states (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin). Meanwhile, Jobs for the Future (JFF) is distributing its recent The Breaking Through Practice Guide. Breaking Through is a collaboration between Jobs for the Future and the National Council for Workforce Education. The practice guide highlights innovations from Breaking Through between 2005 and 2009. Each of its four components offers a “high-leverage strategy” to increase success with low-skilled younger and older adults. The practice guide also contains a contextualization toolkit and supplementary materials, including information about JFF’s advisor training materials.”
