Posted on 08/31/2017

The California Workforce Association (CWA), the California Workforce Development Board (CWDB) and The Labor and Workforce Development Agency (LWDA) hosted two webinars on serving English Language Learners, Immigrants, Refugees and Farmworkers in the Workforce System. The webinar recordings and other resources are available through the CWDB English Language Learners Immigration Initiatives External link opens in new window or tab.

Be sure to check the site often to learn how the workforce system is working to help English language learners gain language proficiency and educational goals through several programs and initiatives. One such program is the ELL Navigator Pilot Program. Agencies can apply for funds from the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Title 1 Governor's Discretionary funds to develop and implement a Workforce Navigator Pilot Program with the goal to promote increased access, create/enhance program structure and availability, and provide supportive services for California's English Language Learner Population.
