An increasingly competitive economy is forcing Career Technical Education (CTE) and workforce leaders to â€œdo more with less.â€ A new resource launched by the U.S. Departments of Labor, Education (through the Office of Vocational and Adult Education), and Health and Human Services this week encourages workforce leaders and partners to maximize their efforts by sharing innovative ideas and best practices on career pathways.
According to the Department of Labor, the resource, called the â€œInnovation Forum,â€ is geared towards organizations serving adults and youth, and was designed as a platform for sharing ideas on â€œnew ways to govern, invest and manage funds, and deliver services.â€
The forum is set up as a blog, and participants are encouraged to submit blog posts and to comment on posted blogs. The most recent post, â€œCareer Pathways Come to Life,â€ highlights the recent National Career Pathways Network Conference in Florida. Read more about how to submit a blog post here.
