ACTE Supports New Common ''Career Ready'' Statement

On Oct. 18, ACTE joined with nearly 30 other national business, education, policy and philanthropic organizations to support a common statement on career readiness. The paper, titled “Building Blocks for Change: What It Means to Be Career Ready,” helps to define what it means to be career ready in the 21st century and unites and amplifies a common voice around the often referenced, but not always fully understood, term.

In 2010, ACTE released a “What Is Career Ready?” definition outlining three broad sets of skills students need to be career-ready: core academic skills, employability skills and technical skills. ACTE created the definition to broaden the national discussion on the topic. Several states have referenced the ACTE definition as a starting point in developing their policies. The new “Building Blocks for Change” statement provides a more detailed description of career readiness while building on the foundational elements outlined in ACTE’s original definition.
