Illinois Community College Board

ICAPS is a partnership between Career and Technical Education and Adult Education within a community college aimed at providing real college credit-based program outcomes in a career pathway, including certificates and industry recognized credentials.  By doing this and drawing upon community partnerships and local resources, students are empowered to forge a new career path for themselves and their families. Illinois Community Colleges are able to develop ICAPS programs through participation in the Illinois Transitions Academy.  The Transitions Academy is designed to assist colleges and partnerships working on developing Bridge and ICAPS programs by increasing awareness of the expanding partnership between Adult Education and Career and Technical Education as it relates to the ICAPS model, Accelerating Opportunity, Illinois Bridge programs, and Illinois Programs of Study.
