ION Launches New Focus Areas Tab
We’ve talked about the Innovation and Opportunity Network (ION) Community of Practice on WorkforceGPS throughout the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) implementation process, so you are likely already familiar with this online interagency bookmark.
However, we have continued to make enhancements to the ION site in order to ensure maximum functionality and ease. The latest of these include a new Focus Areas navigation tab that offers a host of resources on 11 key elements of WIOA (formerly housed on the WIOA Implementation Training page; if you previously bookmarked that page, please update your bookmark to https://ion.workforcegps.org/FocusAreas):
- WIOA 101
- Financial & Grants Management
- One-stops/American Job Centers
- Performance Accountability
- Services to Adult Job Seekers & Workers
- Services to Businesses & Employers
- Services to Youth
- State & Local Governance
- System Alignment
- Target Populations & National Programs
- Wagner-Peyser Employment Services & Unemployment Insurance
