Integrated English Literacy & Civics Education
The term "Integrated English Literacy and Civics Education" means education services provided to English Language Learners (ELLs) who are adults, including professionals with degrees and credentials in their native countries that enable such adults to achieve competency in the English language and acquire the basic and more advanced skills needed to function effectively as parents, workers, and citizens in the United States. Such services shall include instruction in literacy and English language acquisition and instruction on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and civic participation and may include workforce training.
The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE), Academic Office - Adult Education is working to expand its Integrated Education and Training (IET) model offering industry‐recognized credentials to integrated IELCE programs, along with Workforce Development Boards (WDBs) in local workforce areas to assist with local programs.
