Initiatives

World Education is a national leader in designing and providing professional development for the adult education sector in the United States. We have developed, led, and collaborated on local, regional, and national capacity-building projects. World Education has built and operates four professional development centers and a statewide adult literacy hotline:

  1. The EdTech Center at World Education supports educators and local partners in the integration of digital technologies into instruction, promotes digital literacy and access to accelerate college and career readiness, and offers mobile and online learning opportunities.
  2. The LINCS Professional Development Center provides technical assistance to states' adult education professional development systems to meet requirements under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA); offers high-quality, evidence-based instructional resources through the LINCS Resource Collection; and facilitates professional development training opportunities for adult educators. This project is in partnership with Manhattan Strategy Group.
  3. Massachusetts Adult Literacy Hotline refers prospective adult learners and volunteers to more than 300 adult education programs in Massachusetts.
  4. National College Transition Network (NCTN) supports adult education staff, programs, and states, as well as regional and municipal agencies to establish and strengthen college and career readiness services and career pathways for adult learners.
  5. New England Literacy Resource Center (NELRC) strengthens adult literacy services in New England through collaborative projects with adult literacy professional development providers, practitioners, and policymakers.
  6. The System for Adult Basic Education Support (SABES) Program Support Professional Development Center works in creative and responsive ways to provide professional development (PD) that builds the Massachusetts adult education system's capacity to maximize education and career opportunities for adult learners. We provide PD and consultation related to: program management and educational leadership; career pathways; advising; digital literacy; cultural competence; ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) resources and training; and professional licensure support.
