These are a few of the resources that outline key initiatives. 


Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE) administers, coordinates programs that are related to adult education and literacy, career and technical education, and community colleges.

For the latest news and information about career and technical education and adult education, see the "OCTAE Connection newsletter" and the OCTAE Blog.

In addition, the Literacy Information and Communication System, or LINCS, community of adult literacy practitioners has become very active, with numerous study circles, webinars, listserve discussions, and online networking opportunities. This community is also making available many resources, which are vetted by adult literacy experts, for use in adult literacy instruction, administration, and research.

Further, another organization, World Education  has many projects, which include adult literacy and adult education professional development, postsecondary transition, and dissemination of resources for adult basic education.

Finally, the Council for Advancement of Adult Literacy continues to inform policy, such as in its recent efforts in regard to enactment of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), which President Obama signed into law on July 22, 2014.
