Occupational Literacy

Earlier this month, the SEM staff attended and participated in group training sessions for the Occupational Literacy Project (OLP). The OLP provides evaluation, technical assistance, and professional development services to Adult Basic Education (ABE) and vocational training organizations serving District residents. This initiative is funded by the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) and the Department of Employment Services (DOES).

During the training sessions, our staff focused on the areas of occupational literacy, career mapping, and project and program management. Moreover, our staff was able to focus on new occupational literacy areas, such as diversity/cultural competency, self-management, and entrepreneurship/intra-preneurship.

Additionally, the SEM staff was trained on student learning outcomes, lesson plans, and class activities, and program and class assessment and instructor evaluation.
