Massachusetts is fortunate to have a unique mechanism for professionalizing the field and strengthening educator practice through the ABE License. Through our well-planned and blended system of support, we hope to encourage more teachers to undertake what can be an inspiring experience to deepen their knowledge and improve their practice.

The SABES Program Support PD Center provides support to license seekers in addressing the standards required for portfolio development and submission in the areas of Understanding the Adult Learner, Instructional Design and Teaching Approaches, and Learner Assessment and Evaluation. We also support license-seekers in preparing their demonstration of teaching.
