Department of Labor Launches New Technical Assistance Website
On April 18, the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration (ETA) launched WorkforceGPS - the next generation, mobile-friendly, and accessible website that gives the public workforce system, education professionals, and business leaders a platform to access technical assistance resources and engage with their peers. The new site is designed to address the new demands of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), including an increased focus on partnership and cross-agency collaboration, and is designed to make the user experience easy and uncomplicated for the community of public workforce system stakeholders.
Registered users, including those who provide services and programs to people with disabilities and/or other barriers to employment, can join Communities of Practice designed for peer-to-peer interaction related to a topic or target population, or Collections that group resources by topic or target population. For example, the Disability and Employment Community of Practice features notices about upcoming webinars, national online dialogues, and access to disability employment-related websites and resources, such as the Achieving Universal Access and Equal Opportunity – Section 188 Reference Guide.
