TRAIN PD Center @ TCALL

Stakeholder Integration Support Institute:

The Stakeholder Integration Support (SIS) PD Institute’s priority is focused on program and stakeholder needs and will give emphasis to critical PD topics centered on professionalization, recruitment, induction, orientation, and mentoring of practitioners working with WIOA customers. These are critical factors that impact customer outcomes whether the practitioner is an AEL teacher, a Workforce One-Stop intake and assessment worker, a Workforce Solutions – Vocational Rehabilitation counselor, an instructor in developmental education or career/technical education, or a volunteer in a community-based literacy program.
