Employment Training Network (ETN) Overview
What is ETN?
The Employment Training Network (ETN) is a multi-faceted, full-service program created by the Employment Development Department (EDD) to assist in the development and implementation of effective Workforce Investment Act (WIA) projects and programs. The ETN is administered by the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) and is funded by the EDD Workforce Services Division.
The goal of the ETN is to provide immediate short-term technical assistance to agencies receiving WIA funding (at little or no cost), including Local Workforce Investment Areas (LWIA) administrative entity staff, One-Stop operators, community-based organizations, and the local Workforce Investment Boards (LWIB).
The process is streamlined and evaluations received for ETN services have been consistently excellent.
An ETN consultant will come on-site and provide customized, professional assistance in any area that will improve the delivery of services. The ETN has over 150 on-call, qualified consultants. Some of the more common topics addressed by these consultants include:
- Customer Service
- Financial Management
- Hard-to-Serve/Special Populations
- Job Development
- Job Search
- One-Stop Career Center Systems
- Organizational Development
- Strategic Planning
- Workforce Investment Act Operations
The ETN resource library contains books, videos, manuals, brochures and CD-ROMs on a wide variety of employment and training topics available for loan. Available items requested will be sent within 24 hours.
The ETN will reimburse travel expenses so that program staff can see firsthand how others are addressing issues you face in operating an effective program. In a hands-on environment you have the opportunity to discover which training techniques and administrative structures have been successful.
