A Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant for $14.2 million was awarded by the U.S. Department of Labor to the Consortium for Healthcare Education Online (CHEO). The CHEO Project is in place to help community college students develop the skills needed to secure viable and sustainable employment in the allied health fields. Co-Grantee partners hail from across a five state region including Alaska, Colorado, Montana, South Dakota, and Wyoming. CHEO’s task is to enroll 3,037 participants in CHEO related courses, and 2,460 students will participate in state-of-the art remote lab experiments from one of the NANSLO lab sites located in Canada, Montana, and Colorado. Through CHEO projects, 2,460 students will complete online/hybrid programs, and nearly 2,000 will attain allied health related credentials allowing them to step into the workforce possessing the needed skills and hire-ability employer partners’ need.
Rutgers Education and Employment Research Center (EERC) is participating as the third-party evaluator for the duration of this grant. EERC will identify critical measures of program implementation and evaluate how successfully outlined project goals are being met. The evaluation team uses a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods for its formative and summative assessments.
