DYCD Connect PTS Post-Workscope Approval Training (WIOA – Learn & Earn)


This training is facilitated by ExpandED Schools, Inc. in partnership with the Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD).

This two-hour virtual training is targeted to WIOA Learn & Earn program staff. This training focuses on workscope management in the Participant Tracking System (PTS) after your workscope has been approved. This training will not cover functionality related to the Evaluation and Monitoring System (EMS), which includes evaluations, action plans and incident reports.

This training will:

  • Offer hands-on training to users on the necessary steps needed to navigate efficiently throughout the PTS database system.
  • Educate staff with the rationale for and contents of the workscope.
  • Demonstrate how the Workscope reflects the program’s plan and how to make adjustments/changes to accurately reflect any changes made to the plan.
  • Train staff to enter participants, activities, rosters, and attendance data in the Participant Tracking System.
  • Troubleshoot different scenarios that programs may experience in their day-to-day work, such as issues with attendance and changing Activity Schedules.
