The transformation of adult basic education programs to include transition services for adults is an emerging area of concern in adult education, according to the Office of Vocational and Adult Education. This NCSALL Occasional Paper describes five models that the staff at the New England Literacy Resource Center at World Education, Inc., categorized through a survey of adult education centers with transition components from around the United States. The five models - Advising, GED-Plus, ESOL, Career Pathways, and College Preparatory - are described and themes and recommendations that others considering adult transition services might find helpful are included. The Paper also chronicles the experiences of four states (Connecticut, Kentucky, Maine, and Oregon) in their efforts to institutionalize transitions for adults. References and program contact information are also included.
