Highlighting Innovation

The NCTN Promising Practice Series presents detailed descriptions of strategies from the field that are designed to promote the successful transition of students from adult basic education to postsecondary education and training.

Building Relationships with Elected Officials through Program Visits

Inviting elected officials for a visit can be part of a strategy to advocate for a particular program and for adult education in general.

Memorandum of Understanding

Dr. Dann-Messier explains how she used a Memorandum of Understanding to institutionalize the collaborative relationship with her program’s college partner.

Recruitment

While participating in a transition program makes a lot of sense for adults going to college, it is not always an easy sell. X-Cel Inc. was able to leverage an existing relationship with a community job-training partner in order to increase the number of students recruited into its college transition program.
