Adult Education Instructors

Are you interested in enhancing your practice? OSSE offers the following opportunities to adult educators, facilitators and practitioners who want to improve their practice as adult educators:

Graduate Certificate Program in Adult Education

The University of the District of Columbia (UDC), in collaboration with OSSE Adult and Family Education, offers a Graduate Certificate in Adult Education Program to prepare adult educators to meet OSSE licensure requirements and the UDC certification requirements.

OSSE AFE offers a scholarship for adult educators, funding permitting. The eligibility criteria for the scholarship is based on education, employment, and residency and can be found in the OSSE Adult Educator Scholarship Program Information.

UDC also offers a Master of Arts Degree in Adult Education that is aligned with the Graduate Certificate in Adult Education Program. To learn more about these two programs, contact Dr. Heather Bruce at [email protected].

Learning Needs Screening

OSSE Adult and Family Education uses a learning needs screening tool to screen adult learners for disabilities. Adult education, integrated education and training, and/or Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) providers and partners may also use these tools to screen adult participants for learning disabilities.

Professional Development

In collaboration with the University of the District of Columbia and other partners, AFE offers professional development workshops on a variety of topics to providers and partners that serve District residents, including the Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS) Implementation Training.
