The National Institute for Literacy Workforce Education Special Collection demonstrates the value of workforce learning, fosters and promotes the development of high-quality workforce education programs, provides guidelines for planning and supporting these programs, and supports ongoing communication and collaboration among stakeholders. Workforce Education is defined as work-related learning experiences which:

  • can include foundation skills, technical knowledge and computer skills;
  • serve either employed or unemployed workers;
  • are provided either inside or outside the workplace;
  • focus on the skills and knowledge workers need to:
    • get and keep good jobs and
    • meet demands for productivity, safety, and advancement

This project is a joint effort of the National Institute for Literacy and the Office of Vocational and Adult Education, Division of Adult Education and Literacy.
