Welcome to The Link
Dr. Rodger’s Introduction:
Career and technology education (CTE) provides students with the skills- technical skills, academic skills and employability skills- and discipline needed to succeed in life. The benefits of CTE are two-fold. Research has shown that students who participate in CTE programs are more likely than their peers to develop the skills necessary to help us close the Global Achievement and Opportunity Gap. Research also shows employers express more satisfaction with new hires who complete a CTE or technical programs because they have been developing and sharpening their problem-solving, project completion, communication, time management and critical thinking skills in their early teens.
Here at HCDE, we provide equitable access to quality programs that align with workforce opportunities, including work-based learning, industry-based certifications to prepare students for high-wage, high-skill, and in-demand careers. In this month’s issue, we share resources that take a deeper look at how CTE programs are impacting student success across the state. We thank for your partnership, and don’t forget…Please share and subscribe!
