This spotlight describes how states, regions, and programs are using bridge strategies to prepare learners in IELCE activities for IET programs.
IELCE activities funded by WIOA Section 243 funds must be delivered in combination with IET programs. Using bridge strategies to connect IELCE to IET is one approach to delivering IELCE activities in combination with IET programs. This spotlight how states, regions, and programs are using bridge strategies to prepare learners enrolled in IELCE activities for IET programs.
Recognizing that states and programs must deliver Section 243-funded IELCE activities in combination with IET, this spotlight aims to provide substantive examples of one approach: the use of bridge strategies. This spotlight describes the benefits of using bridge strategies to connect IELCE to IET. It also provides an example framework for how IELCE can serve a bridge by preparing learners for an IET and other steps along a career pathway.
The spotlight showcases examples of this approach in action at the state, regional, and program level. State staff and program administrators will benefit from the experience shared by Washington State, Women Employed, and Prince George’s Community College.
