For the last several years, the National Research Center for Career and Technical Education (NRCCTE) has conducted valuable research initiatives that provide more information on Career Technical Education (CTE) programs and strategies. This week, the Center released a comprehensive report showcasing the influential work completed by the Center over the last five years.
The report summarizes a wealth of resources and research undertaken by NRCCTE, including summaries of several studies, publications and videos, professional development, and technical assistance.
NRCCTE’s research has covered a wide range of topics pertaining to CTE including programs of study and career pathways, the integration of academics and CTE, using data to improve the design and delivery of CTE, and more. Their findings suggest that programs of study contribute to student engagement and emphasize the importance of connecting secondary and postsecondary education.
