GNTC’s Anne Clay Becomes Certified Manager In Program Improvement For Adult Education

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Anne Clay, assistant director of Adult Education at Georgia Northwestern Technical College, has successfully completed an intensive two-year training program and is now a Certified Manager in Program Improvement (CMPI).

This certification is first of its kind in the adult education and literacy field and signifies her as a member of an elite group of professional managers.

“This two-year program involved many activities and projects that challenged the participants to apply the concepts they were learning in the classroom,” said Connie Smith, vice president of adult education at GNTC. “We appreciate Anne’s commitment to excellence and to the Adult Education Program at Georgia Northwestern”

The CMPI program was developed as a collaboration between the National Adult Education Professional Development Consortium (NAEPDC) and ProLiteracy as part of the Leadership Excellence Academies (LEA) training initiative. In 2013, ProLiteracy refocused their work and asked the Center for Literacy, Education and Employment (CLEE) to be NAEPDC’s partner.

The LEA Academies are built upon a foundation of research, theory, professional wisdom, and best practices. Training occurs over time and with opportunities for application through a series of interim activities and learning projects. Strong, professional leadership is critical to program improvement and high quality adult education and literacy services.
