Location: Brentwood, NY
Instructor(s): Wilson Charlotin

This case management training has been designed by NYSED's Office of ACCES-Adult Education Program and Policy (AEPP) for all case managers in adult education programs funded under Employment Preparation Education (EPE) State aid, Welfare Education Program (WEP), WIOA Title II, and Adult Literacy Education (ALE) Funding. Case managers will learn the ACCES-AEPP priorities and be able to share them with their students. Topic areas such as the 4 pathways to a NYS High School Equivalency Diploma, the adult education intake process, and identification of the barriers to employment will be covered. In 2020, this will be expanded to apprenticeship opportunities. It is expected that case managers will also become very familiar with quality resources within their own community and actively support their students by referring students to these resources.
