“Accelerating Opportunity is a national initiative of Jobs for the Future to enable adults with low basic skills to acquire valued postsecondary credentials and rewarding careers. It offers pathways to economic opportunity for those left behind in the nation’s recovering economy, through integrated instruction in basic skills and career and technical education; team teaching; accelerated learning; and structured career pathways, bolstered by comprehensive student support services. Based on four years of designing and managing Accelerating Opportunity, Jobs for the Future and [its] partners have uncovered critical lessons for replicating and scaling this promising initiative for adult learners” (p.1).
