TRACK 1
Launching Healthcare Careers with English Language Learners
STRAND: Expanding Pathways
WIOA requirements can be daunting. Meeting these requirements while serving the unique needs of English Language Learners and the structure of a grant funded IELCE/IET is a challenge, too. But it can be done! Join us to discuss the strategies Anne Arundel Community College used to design and implement a Central Sterile Processing for English Language Learners program, now serving its third cohort of students. This session highlights the program architecture that enabled strong English Language acquisition and employment outcomes for our first cohorts of students. Participants will identify tactics to maximize student recruitment efforts, deliver contextualized ELL instruction, maintain strong employer partnerships, and engage students in effective career readiness activities.
