Five years ago, the Advance CTE (as NASDCTEc) with support from all 50 states released Reflect, Transform & Lead: A New Vision for Career Technical Education. This bold document laid out key principles and actions the community needed to take for Career Technical Education (CTE) to reach its full promise in the years ahead.
Since 2010, the landscape has changed dramatically, and CTE has advanced in many significant ways. To take stock of what has – and hasn’t – been accomplished since 2010, in mid-July 2015 Advance CTE released a series of Five-Year Progress Reports on each of the five Vision principles. These briefs aim to celebrate our collective accomplishments but also aim to motivate us on where more work is needed for CTE to fully meet the needs of students, employers and our economy.
In May 2016, Advance CTE and seven organizations released a new vision for CTE, Putting Learner Success First: A Shared Vision for the Future of CTE. Learn more here.
