As illustrated in the above image, Integrated Education and Training has three components:
- Adult education and literacy (core ABE content)
- Workforce preparation activities (e.g. ACES/TIF and Northstar)
- Workforce training (for a specific occupation or occupational sector)
According to the federal definition of IET, these three components must be delivered contextually and concurrently. Also, according to the federal definitions a career pathway must include an IET component.
