Our Tradition Is Serving 'Nontraditional' Students
CAEL exists to improve education-to-career pathways for adult learners. We specialize in bringing together organizations that support adult learners and providing them with the tools and solutions they need to effectively serve this population.
CAEL helps organizations succeed by harnessing experience, expertise, resources, and solutions that effectively support adult learners as they navigate on- and off-ramps between education and employment. We partner with entities across the adult learner ecosystem to help create actionable career pathways along the journey of lifelong learning and meaningful work.
Our expertise covers credit for prior learning (including the prior learning assessment process), developing strategies aligned to education options and labor market needs, mapping career pathways for adult learners, and developing policies and processes to support long-term sustainability of partner programs.
For more than 40 years, we have partnered with education providers, employers, industry groups, workforce offices, and economic development organizations to better align their services and programs to support adult learners.

We work with postsecondary education providers, employers, industry groups, workforce and economic development organizations, and mission-aligned funding partners.
