Advance CTE Announces Initiative to Improve State Postsecondary CTE Data Quality

State or system leaders are invited to apply for a new, multi-year initiative to advance Career Technical Education (CTE) data quality, funded by the ECMC Foundation. Selected states will conduct a needs assessment with support from Advance CTE and develop a two-year action plan to strengthen their postsecondary CTE data.

With support from Advance CTE, the selected cohort of states will explore how robust, state-level postsecondary data systems can assist postsecondary institutions in offering career pathways that meet student interests and are aligned to a good career. The initiative will also identify strategies and recommendations other states can leverage to improve the quality and use of their postsecondary CTE data.

As part of this work, Advance CTE is offering selected states tiered supports to ensure they can achieve their stated goals and objectives. These supports include planning and implementation grants totaling $80,000, ongoing virtual and in-person technical assistance, access to a peer support network and 50-state resources and tools.

The application window is open today, June 8, through July 17, 2020. Learn more about the application process and how to apply here. Interested participants are also encouraged to attend an informational webinar on Monday, June 15 at 3:00pm ET.
