Last Updated:



The ELL IET Fund TA DE awardee will be responsible for providing meaningful TA and evaluation to ELL IET Fund PY 22-23 program awardees as they design, develop, and implement projects that expand IET course offerings across the state and accelerate employment and re-employment strategies for English Language Learners; and for conducting an evaluation that summarizes lessons learned and makes recommendations for future projects.


The ELL IET Fund TA DE PY 22-23 grant aims to increase equity and improve outcomes for ELLs facing significant barriers to employment and education by providing necessary guidance and support to program awardees in their development of successful ELL IET programs.  Applicants are expected to base their overall approach on the Integrated Education and Training (IET) model and advance the work being done in this space. Accordingly, the ELL IET Fund TA and Evaluation PY 22-23 grant will fund the assessment, analysis, and improvement of those service delivery approaches currently associated with the IET models being utilized by the funded programs.  The TA awardee will work in close coordination with (1) ELL IET Fund PY 22-23 program awardees, (2) EDD project managers, and (3) all other relevant stakeholders to conduct ongoing TA and evaluation and to complete a final evaluation report.

In collaboration with workforce and education partners, project stakeholders, and with oversight from the EDD, the TA DE awardee will be responsible for creating and sustaining a larger collaborative community centered upon the IET model and the goals and objectives of this specific ELL IET program. This includes facilitating connectivity among program awardees, assistance with coordinating local and regional connectivity to develop grantee networks, developing successful strategies, sharing best practices, and identifying and addressing challenges as they occur throughout the life of the grant. Program outputs, including progress and analytical reports, will inform adaptations, shifts, and recommendations to the work as new lessons emerge to support real-time feedback and learning.  The awardee will also work in collaboration with the EDD to facilitate targeted connectivity with other programs funded by the EDD and other state partners that are serving English learner populations, including, but not limited to programs aimed at serving refugees, immigrants, and migrant/seasonal farmworkers.
