Upcoming Webinar: CTE and Global Competency

Being globally competent is increasingly a requirement in today’s economy, where individuals are called upon to compete, connect, and cooperate on an international scale. Career Technical Education (CTE) programs offer a unique platform for teaching global competencies, providing the rigorous and authentic setting necessary to prepare students for the competitive world economy, while offering a more engaging, motivating and relevant education.

To explore the ways in which CTE and global education intersect and can be integrated, Asia Society, Longview Foundation, NASDCTEc and ACTE partnered on the new publication Preparing a Globally Competent Workforce Through High-Quality Career and Technical Education, which will be released in early January 2016.

Join us on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 from 3-4 p.m. ET for a webinar on this critical issue, featuring local leaders sharing what globally-minded CTE programs look like at the classroom level. Register today!

  • Jo Anne Honeycutt, State CTE Director, North Carolina Department of Public Instruction
  • Larisa K. Schelkin, CEO, President & Founder, Global STEM Education Center, Inc.
  • Mark Tronicke, Global Exchange Coordinator, Bergen County Academies in New Jersey
