Last week, the Department of Labor (DOL) issued a Training and Employment Notice, announcing that it will convene a series of webinars over the course of the next month on various Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) implementation topics. The webinars, conducted in coordination with the Department of Education (DoED), will be used to obtain input on WIOA implementation from a range of interested stakeholders.
Registration and a list of discussion questions for each webinar will be available on the DOL Employment and Training Administration’s WIOA Resource page. All webinars will begin at 2pm. Dates and topics for each webinar are listed below.
The Department of Education has also begun seeking stakeholder input on WIOA implementation. Last week, DoED’s Office of Career, Technical and Adult Education (OCTAE), in collaboration with the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services posted a blog asking stakeholders to submit comments and recommendations on implementation of WIOA Titles II and IV. Comments may be submitted in response to the blog through August 29, 2014. OCTAE also plans to host a webinar on the adult education and literacy provisions of WIOA on August 28 at 2:30 p.m.
NSC will provide updates on opportunities to weigh in with the agencies on WIOA implementation as they become available.
