The purpose of the Institute is to provide a venue for sharing of effective practices, ideas, and research.

The 2012 Institute theme is Setting a New Standard and the program will be organized into five primary strands, aligned with NASDCTEc’s core principles for CTE:

•CTE is critical to ensuring that the United States leads in global competitiveness.

•CTE prepares students to succeed in further education and careers.
•CTE is delivered through comprehensive programs of study aligned to The National Career Clusters Framework.
•CTE is a results-driven system that demonstrates a positive return on investment.

Share your experiences and successes to inform participants with specific how-to, replicable advice that goes beyond awareness of Career Clustersâ„¢ to specific implementation strategies.
