WEBINAR Professional Development Training Series

The Council for Opportunity in Education (COE) is exploring innovative and economical ways to bring professional development training to the comfort of your office. We have begun a series of trainings that involve participation through a combination of web-based presentations and conference calls called Webinars. These low-cost trainings (no travel, lodging, or meal costs) will enable program staff to receive high quality professional development and remain in their office to provide services to their participants with minimal interruption. Space is limited. Register early!

NOTEFor any webinars for which there is a cost, payment must be made by credit card. No purchase orders will be accepted,
even if your registration is processed successfully.

The Objectives section of your proposal is one place where many grantees lose all points.

The U.S. Department of Education announced in mid-October that they were changing the Competitive Preference Priorities (CPPs) that were first announced earlier. CPP1 is now Increasing Postsecondary Success. The Department is using this Competitive Preference Priority to focus on postsecondary persistence and completion rates among students from high-need backgrounds. CCP1 covers two separate topics — 1) placing a greater emphasis on strategies designed to increase the success of participants in developmental education courses and accelerating student progression into credit-bearing coursework towards their degree or credential, and 2) influencing the development of non-cognitive skills.

This webinar will review each part of CPP1 and provide suggestions of what each section could include to make your proposal competitive.
