Adult Education Program Optimization
Through needs assessment, customized professional development planning, and rapid instructional design, EDSI assists adult education systems in improving system performance and increasing student achievement.
At EDSI, we believe there is a tremendous need to elevate the level of adult education services provided in our states. Changes in labor market trends will soon leave too many working-age adults without the credentials or occupational training necessary to find jobs and remain gainfully employed. Preparing our students for post-secondary education and occupational training is an increasingly urgent priority.
EDSI can help! We'll help you implement a new professional development paradigm and approach to delivering adult education that provides our students with the skills necessary to be successful in the 21st century.
Assess: Assess training needs by interviewing leadership and staff, reviewing state and local policies and analyzing data
Develop: Develop customized curricula designed specifically to address your needs and reinforce your policies and vision
Deliver: Deliver training in engaging formats that promote active learning using only highly-experienced trainers
Evaluate: Evaluate training outcomes and overall training successes while identifying necessary changes and future training needs
By 2014, nearly half of the available jobs in the United States will be middle-skill jobs that require more than a HS Diploma/GED and at least some post-secondary education.
EDSI understands our vision and helps us get there. Throughout the project, EDSI has helped to define more clearly what we need, redefine deliverables and propose feasible solutions.
