Choosing a career is probably one of the biggest decisions a person makes. Â How does a student, of any age, make a sound decision?Â What are the knowledge and skills needed to achieve postsecondary and career success? Â How does one navigate through the sea of career information? Â The answer: A comprehensive guidance program coupled with a rigorous CTE program.
NASDCTEc has collaborated with the American School Counselor Association to author Counselors as CTE Stakeholders, a brief that highlights the integral role that school counselors, in conjunction with a CTE program, play in successfully guiding students through the maze of secondary and postsecondary options so that they are successful in their chosen career.Â The brief looks at ways that CTE and school counseling can benefit one another to accomplish their shared goal of student success.Â It also showcases three states – Nebraska, Missouri and Utah – that are examples of effective collaboration between CTE and Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling.
