IET is an innovative education model that integrates basic-skills adult education with technical instruction. The curriculum is jointly designed by certified adult education instructors and specialists in the technical field. Classes are co-taught by adult education and technical training instructors. EASTCONN’s IET program helps students improve their English language skills, while earning both their GED and nationally recognized credential like Microsoft Office Specialist or the National Retail Foundation's Customer Service and Sales certificate.


Benefits: Because learners have the support of adult education instructors to work through literacy/numeracy/cultural issues in the technical training, lower-skill learners can fully access the training. Learners who complete the IET program in a particular technical area not only improve their basic skills, learn English and earn adult high school diplomas, but also attain an industry-recognized credential.
