Welcome Scott Stump to Advance CTE

It is my honor to join the talented and passionate team at Advance CTE in the role of Senior Advisor. As a former State Director of Career Technical Education (CTE), I am excited to lead and contribute to major initiatives and projects including Advance CTE’s Postsecondary CTE Leaders Fellowship Program and Advancing the Framework, a multi-year project to revise the National Career Clusters® Framework. I will also support Advance CTE’s federal advocacy, state policy and technical assistance efforts.

My journey to Advance CTE started as a CTE student and teacher in northeastern Indiana where I witnessed firsthand the difference we as a CTE community make in the lives of learners of all ages and backgrounds. My early CTE experience led service to the National FFA Organization, the state of Colorado and the Colorado Community College System, Vivayic (a learning solutions provider devoted to helping individuals, organizations and corporations do good in the world) and the United States Department of Education as the Assistant Secretary for the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE). As the assistant secretary for OCTAE, I served as the principal adviser to the Secretary of Education on all matters concerning high school, career, technical and adult education as well as community colleges, the workforce and economic development.

Without question, collaborating with state and national leaders and organizations on the implementation of the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V) was the most meaningful work to me over the past two years. Early in the process we asked states to “Rethink CTE” by questioning everything to ensure that nothing limits a student’s ability to be ready for what’s next in their life and career.

Wherever opportunities and travels have taken our family over the past few years, home is a small ranch in Stoneham, Colorado.  As a parent, I am proud that all of my children are products of CTE.
