Business and industry are key stakeholders in and contributors to Career Technical Education (CTE) – their consistent involvement and regular input is critical to providing CTE students with relevant knowledge, experiences and employment opportunities. Likewise, CTE students are also crucial to business and industry, providing their employers with a steady stream of highly knowledgeable and skilled workers. Therefore, NASDCTEc’s latest one-pagers are geared toward the cooperative relationship between CTE and business and industry that greatly benefits both entities in addition to stimulating the economy.
The three one-pagers can be accessed through NASDCTEc’s Advocacy Tools webpage under “Business & Industry Involvement.” The topics of the one-pagers are:
• “Why Business and Industry Support CTE”
• “Data Sheets: CTE Leads to College and Careers”
• “Cuts to CTE: A Problem for Business and Industry”
Please feel free to use these tools as a resource for your business and industry partners or in your advocacy efforts with your Members of Congress.
