Area CTE Centers operate in a variety of ways â€“ from shared-time centers offering primarily technical training to full-time centers that provide students with both academic instruction and technical training â€“ but all provide opportunities for students to receive relevant, rigorous CTE. And at a time when employers say that they are unable to find workers who have the right skills to fill job vacancies, area CTE centers provide a crucial link between the knowledge and skills that students learn and those demanded by local businesses.
Join us for a webinar that features state and local leaders who will discuss area CTE centers in their states and how they are making connections to the needs of business and industry and their communities.
The webinar will be held on Thursday, April 25th at 3 p.m. ET. Speakers include:
Steve Gratz, Ph.D.
Director, Office of Career-Technical Education, Ohio Department of Education
Director of Instructional Development, Miami Valley Career Technology Center
Chief Communications and Marketing Officer, Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education
