It’s been a busy two years for the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration, and the WorkforceGPS Team is proud to be able to help share a milestone in that effort:
Last week the U.S. Departments of Labor, Education, and Health and Human Services made publicly available an advance posting of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Final Rules, which will be formally published in the Federal Register in the upcoming weeks. In addition to the Final Rules, an interagency press release, fact sheets, a quick reference guide to reading the rules, and FAQs were published; visitors can view the Final Rules and these resources at https://www.doleta.gov/wioa/.
After taking a look at those Final Rules and resources, we encourage you to sign up to attend the WIOA at Year Two: Continuing the Conversation webinar on Tuesday, July 19, 2016. Six months after the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) National Convening and only weeks after WIOA Final Rules were made publicly available, leaders from Federal agencies--U.S. Departments of Education, Labor, and Health and Human Services—will reconvene to provide a candid update on the "State of WIOA.” This webinar will celebrate the two-year anniversary of the passing of WIOA and update the public workforce and education systems on what they can expect to see next.
As always, the Innovation and Opportunity Network (ION) Community of Practice remains a great way to keep tabs on the latest WIOA developments and get your hands on the latest resources to assist you with WIOA implementation.
