Resources areÂ now availableÂ for the July 25 webinar:Â Advanced PlacementÂ® Across the Career ClustersÂ®.
Traditionally Advanced PlacementÂ® (AP) courses and exams have not been recommended for students in Career Technical Education (CTE) programs. To bust this myth, NASDCTEc and the College Board worked together to draft a document â€“ Career and Technical Education and Advanced Placement â€“ that shows how AP courses and exams can be relevant to a studentâ€™s program of study across the 16 Career ClustersÂ®.
This webinar featured that work, explored how AP courses and exams are being embedded in studentsâ€™ programs of study at the local level, and engaged participants around additional strategies for including AP courses and other rigorous courses within CTE Career Pathways.
When:Â Thursday July 25 at 3 p.m.Â ET and featured the following speakers:
- Â Kate Blosveren,Â Associate Executive Director, The National Association of State DirectorsÂ of Career Technical Education Consortium (NASDCTEc)
