The Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) recently published an infographic that connects workforce employability skills with CTE coursework. These are great reminders for families to review together as they discuss both college and career readiness.
ACTE has produced a new research-based fact sheet connecting the general workforce skills that employers most need—professionalism, teamwork, critical thinking, oral and written communication, leadership and more—with research demonstrating that CTE helps students develop career readiness and employability skills that have value across industries and career fields.
The research used addresses various aspects of CTE programs, including curriculum, work-based learning, career and technical student organizations and career guidance.
You can access this one-page publication and ACTE’s other fact sheets at www.acteonline.org/factsheets.
