World Education US welcomes Judy Mortrude to our staff as Senior Technical Advisor. Judy has taken over directing the LINCS Professional Development Center and will continue supporting state efforts to scale and sustain integrated education and training and assist states in meeting the state leadership requirements set forth in Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Section 223.
Judy has more than 30 years’ experience developing, delivering, and evaluating workforce education aimed at low-literacy and high-barrier adults. She has been a classroom teacher, school administrator, and state agency staff. Her most recent job was as Senior Policy Analyst and the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP). Prior to that, Judy co-designed and directed the Minnesota FastTRAK integrated education and training program for the Minnesota Department of Education and Economic Development. Judy will be based in our DC office. Judy says she is “thrilled to be joining the committed team of educators at World Education!”
Judy succeeds Kaye Beall, who will facilitate the transition before officially retiring later this year after 14 years at World Education. Our deepest gratitude to Kaye for her leadership and her many contributions to the field of adult education.
