About Us

The California Adult Education Program (CAEP), under the direction of the California Department of Education and the California Community College Chancellor’s Office, work together to provide linkages for learners across their systems that equip adults with the academic and career skills needed to enhance their success. The CAEP, consisting of K-12 adult education, community college noncredit and county office of education provides instruction and services in the following program areas:

  1. Programs in elementary and secondary basic skills, including programs leading to a high school diploma or high school equivalency certificate.
  2. Programs for immigrants eligible for educational services in citizenship, English as a second language, and workforce preparation.
  3. Programs for adults, including, but not limited to, older adults, are primarily related to entry or re-entry into the workforce.
  4. Programs for adults, including, but not limited to, older adults, are primarily designed to develop knowledge and skills to assist elementary and secondary school children to succeed academically in school.
  5. Programs for adults with disabilities.
  6. Programs in career technical education that are short-term in nature and have high employment potential.
  7. Programs offering pre-apprenticeship training activities conducted in coordination with one or more apprenticeship programs approved by the Division of Apprenticeship Standards for the occupation and geographic area.

Why Attend

Adult Education continues to support adult learners through unprecedented change. The COVID-19 induced pandemic, the state of the economy, and unrest pivoted adult education programs into uncharted territory, but CA adult educators continue to rise to the challenge. The CAEP Summit 2021 is an opportunity for you to share and discuss innovative and effective promising practices, strategies, and other resources related to technology and distance learning, student support services, transition services, partnerships, equity, and cultural responsiveness, data, and accountability, and more.

The CAEP Summit 2021 is virtual, which means there is no cost to attend, and no travel required. You can attend live sessions from the comforts of your working station (wherever that may be), or you can watch on-demand sessions, which will be available for a month after the conference. Session materials will be available for download. You will also have the opportunity to chat live with colleagues and exhibitors and join chat rooms.

The CAEP Summit 2021 is ideal for the teachers, coordinators, administrators, and support staff in the network of California adult education providers under the California Adult Education Program. This event will offer relevant and new information through dynamic presentations with an emphasis on working creatively and collaboratively to respond to the current needs of adult learners and help ensure learners are well prepared for employment or further education.
