WV Adult Ed Instructor Handbook 2017-18 Section 16 SPOKES Program

West Virginia

Intense Job Search (Job Development and Follow-up)

“A Career Development Consultant (CDC) may be available to a program to provide assistance with enhancing the learner’s job readiness skills, as well provide job development and follow-up. While participating in SPOKES, especially during this component, the CDC may direct and assist students in their job search activities where applicable. The Career Development Consultant may provide up to six months of follow-up activities for students who gain unsubsidized employment. When students are assigned job development activities outside of the class, the CDC may be officially responsible for these activities and class time is still maintained at the SPOKES class. Coordinated efforts between a CDC, the regional adult education coordinator or designee, and the SPOKES instructor(s) are vital during this component.”
