CAEP Adult Dual Enrollment: Lessons and Opportunities Research Brief
The California Adult Education Program (CAEP) Technical Assistance Project (TAP) supports the expansion of ADE as a Learner Transition strategy, one of the California Adult Education State Priorities aligned with the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO) Vision for Success goals and the California Department of Education’s Priorities, as well as the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Adult Education and Family Literacy, Title II State Plan. Learner Transition involves guiding students’ progress from adult education along pathways to achieve their college and career goals. ADE is one of a menu of transition strategies, which also include bridge and pre apprenticeship programs, integrated education and training, and transition support services.
In 2021, CAEP TAP partnered with Jennie Mollica and Peter Simon of High Road Alliance (HRA) to gather input from the field about the status of adult dual enrollment (ADE) today. The CAEP Adult Dual Enrollment: Lessons and Opportunities research brief captures lessons learned from adult education providers and community colleges who have promoted dual enrollment in adult education and credit-bearing college courses, to inform expanded use of the approach statewide. Drawing upon ten interviews, one peer learning circle attended by twenty-seven individuals, and engagement of an advisory group of experienced practitioners (see Appendix), the brief also identifies challenges to implementing the promising strategy and recommendations to state policymakers and leaders to support its scaling to benefit greater numbers of California’s adult students.
Access the research brief to learn more about the challenges of implementing ADE as well as the recommendations to state policymakers and leaders.
Nominate a CAEP Model Program
In this season, the CAEP Office and CAEP TAP welcomes nominations of California Adult Education Programs, demonstrating innovative, emerging, or model practices for the Advancing CA Adult Education Award and recognition at the CAEP Summit 2022. We are aware of some of the amazing strides programs and learners are making in adult education. It is now time to share with the rest of the State and be recognized for the wonderful work taking place.
To submit, model CAEP programs must be aligned to approved CAEP program areas and the adult education state priorities: learner transition, program development, equity, leadership, technology and distance learning, program evaluation, and marketing. The adult education state priorities align with the CCCCO Vision for Success goals and the CDE Superintendent’s Initiatives.
