JVS Boston developed and implemented an innovative way of delivering and measuring adult education classes that moves English Language learners into the labor market. English for Advancement (EFA) differs from traditional adult education in almost every way possible: model, implementation, assessment, curriculum, staffing, metrics, financing, employer relationships, and outcomes measurement. This new approach aligns with what adult learners want and what employers need, with the added bonus of improving the economy by increasing the tax base. JVS Boston successfully used an innovative financing tool, Pay for Success, to implement this approach to adult education. This successful model can now serve as a pilot for embedding outcomes based contracting into core adult education funding and utilizing adult education to give students exactly what they want: increased access to the labor market.
