TESOL Releases New WIOA Resource Kit

by David Cutler | 05/03/2017
TESOL International Association is excited to announce the release of its latest policy-focused resource kit: “WIOA and English Learners: What Educators Need to Know.” As the largest piece of federal legislation to address and fund adult education and workforce development programs, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) provides significant funding and guidance for adult English language learner programs across the country. This new, in-depth resource kit aims to help TESOL educators and advocates better understand the background, history, and intentions of this law, as well as the impact WIOA has on educating and training adult English language learners.

Please visit the TESOL WIOA Resources webpage to learn more about WIOA and access additional resources. You may also download a copy of the WIOA TESOL Resource Kit.
