The Massachusetts adult education system is comprised of approximately 1,100 teachers, advisors, and program administrators. They assist adult students, particularly these with barriers to employment, to identify and achieve their education and career goals and gain economic self-sufficiency. High-quality professional development ensures that adult educators are equipped to align instruction with the ever-evolving workforce needs, skill demands, and educational technologies that result in student success.
The SABES Program Support PD Center works in creative and responsive ways to provide professional development that builds the Massachusetts adult education system's capacity to maximize education and career opportunities for the adult learners we serve. We provide PD and consultation related to: program management and educational leadership; career pathways; advising; digital literacy; cultural competence; ADA resources and training; and professional licensure support.
