TRAINING AND EMPLOYMENT GUIDANCE LETTER NO. 15-10
WIOA Operating Guidance : No
Increasing Credential, Degree, and Certificate Attainment by Participants of the Public Workforce System
The purpose of this Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) is fourfold. First, this TEGL officially reinforces the President’s goal that every American complete at least one year of postsecondary higher education or career training. Second, it announces the Employment and Training Administration’s (ETA) commitment to the Secretary of Labor’s High Priority Performance Goal to increase credential attainment by participants of the public workforce system. Third, this TEGL describes strategies that state and local workforce agencies, their strategic partners, and ETA discretionary grantees can adopt to both increase the rate of credential attainment among workforce program participants and improve the quality of those credentials. Fourth, it clarifies the reporting requirements for each of the programs included in
the goal. Any additional requirements on state or local workforce agencies or discretionary grantees would be addressed in future guidance.
