Professional Development

Professional and organizational development is essential to improving the factors that directly impact teacher effectiveness, program success, student retention, and student learning and achievement.

Through the Adult Training and Development Network (ATDN), the Bureau provides a centralized coordinated approach to service delivery and offers a comprehensive professional development schedule year round.

The Connecticut Association for Adult and Continuing Education (CAACE) lobbies for continued and increased Federal and State adult education funding. Its purpose is to provide leadership in advancing the concept of lifelong learning, and to conduct, promote, and sponsor professional development conferences and activities.

The New England Literacy Resource Center (NELRC) strengthens adult literacy services in New England through sharing and collaborative special projects among State Literacy Resource Centers (SLRC) or their equivalents, adult literacy practitioners and policy-makers in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.

Regional Education Service Centers (RESCs) enhance the quality of education and provide solutions to identified needs through a wide range of programs and services. Technology training and other opportunities of interest to adult educators may be available through a local RESC. Check with your RESC at one of the links below:
