Advance CTE is excited to announce the launch of the Learning that Works Resource Center! This directory is your destination for high-quality materials focused on Career Technical Education (CTE) and career readiness. In this Resource Center, youâ€™ll find the reports, guides, tools and analyses of state policies you needÂ to support the development and implementation of high-quality CTE and career readiness programs and policies across and within states.
The Resource Center was developed through the New Skills for Youth initiative, a partnership of the Council of Chief State School Officers, Advance CTE and the Education Strategy Group, generously funded by JPMorgan Chase & Co. Tools and case studies developed by the partners and other organizations will be added to the Resource Center regularly.
The Resource Center lets your search in a variety of ways. If you’re interested in a specific issue, like data and accountability, you can find all relevant materials sorted topically. If youâ€™re looking for resourcesÂ toÂ help you roll up your sleeves and focus on implementation, check out the guides and tools. Â You can also find tools created specifically for New Skills for Youth. Finally, the Resource Center can help you learn about some promising policies from across the country, like Tennesseeâ€™s recent standards revision process.
The materials in the Resource Center have been carefully curated by Advance CTE staff to ensure that remains high quality and useful for you. For a resource to be included, it must:
- Align with the recommendations of Opportunities and Options, the six objectives of the New Skills for Youth initiative and the five principles of Putting Learner Success First: A Shared Vision for the Future of CTE;
- Promote equitable access to high-quality career pathways; and
- Provide actionable information and have clear utility for state and local leaders in todayâ€™s policy environment
