The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) will be developing eLearning tools to support the professional development needs of the workforce development staff across the country. To realize this goal, ETA is seeking 20-30 volunteers from a mix of WIOA programs, partners, and states to join a task force to help shape the development of online training tools to support nearly 2,400 American Job Centers. These eLearning tools will be posted on the Disability and Employment WorkforceGPS site.
In building on the lessons learned from the Workforce Innovation Cohort on Disability and Employment that finished in May 2019, members of this new task force will share their ideas and insights to help drive the content in supporting the development of the eLearning training modules. These training tools will be used to support American Job Centers in providing more effective and efficient services to individuals with disabilities.
Our goal is to recruit diverse thought leaders – from those providing services in the front lines to state leaders – to maximize shared organizational learning within the American Job Center network. To learn more, please visit the following:
