Happy CTE Month! Each Friday in February we will showcase tools and resources to use during CTE Month and highlight the great work states and organizations are doing to get the word about CTE Month.
Advance CTE developed a number of resources to help you communicate about the value of CTE. Supported by the Siemens Foundation, Advance CTE worked with states to pilot innovative and effective models to communicate about CTE with key stakeholders, students and their families, to guarantee career success for each learner. Learn about model strategies and approaches in three new briefs:
- Strategic Messaging for Eﬀective Communications
- Supporting Districts and Schools in their Recruitment Eﬀorts
- A Digital Communications Approach
We also created a number of templates including a ready-to-use brochure, flyer, banner, postcard and ad for you to use to make the case for CTE in your community. The materials are designed so that you can plug in photos and information about your school, district or state reinforced by nationally tested messages that we know resonate with students and families.
Utah State Board of Education released five videos highlighting CTE pathways to in-demand and high-wage careers such as aviation and aerospace, health science, Information Technology and more.

South Carolina Department of Education released a statewide social media calendar and resource guide to help districts communicate about their successful CTE programs.
The Arkansas Division of Career and Technical Education launched a social media campaign: What CTE Means to Me where students and school district accounts are posting what CTE means to them alongside facts making the case for CTE using the #WhatCTEMeans hashtag.
