Join us as we discuss the performance reporting requirements of the follow-up outcomes for Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grantees.  We will also discuss some successful tips and strategies for how to track the employment and education status of participants.

Description

Round 4 grantees approach the end of their grant, these final six months are meant for collecting, organizing and preparing the student outcome data for their final annual performance report (APR). Of all the TAACCCT performance outcomes, the thorniest to report can be the follow up outcomes B.7 (Further Education), B.8 (Employment), B.9 (Retained Employment) and B.10 (Incumbent Worker Wage Increase). Oftentimes, this is because tracking down students after they’ve left your college can prove difficult. However, it’s a critical step to identifying all your successful outcomes. That’s true even if you have an agreement with your state to receive wage record data, since that data can be incomplete and there are often time lags. Thus, the last six months of the grant are designated for this type of effort (and other activities as described in the TAACCCT FAQs).  

To help address this challenge, this webinar will cover several different aspects of the TAACCCT performance follow up outcomes. 

Specifically, we will:

  1. Review the allowability of follow up tracking efforts in the final six months;
  2. Cover the reporting definitions of B.7, B.8, B.9 and B.10; and
  3. Offer programmatic strategies for participant follow up tracking.
