CTE Standards Open for Review by National Board


March 18, 2014


 CTE Standards Open for Review by National Board

The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (National Board) has announced the public comment period for the revised Career and Technical Education (CTE) Standards,  2nd edition. 

Drafted by a committee of CTE educators and other experts in the profession, the standards will be available for review from March 16 to April 13. Once approved, they will serve as the foundation for National Board Certification in CTE. The link to the survey and more information are available on the National Board's website at http://www.nbpts.org/public-comment.


Based on the National Board's "Five Core Propositions," the standards:

1) Identify specific knowledge, skills and attitudes that support accomplished practice, while emphasizing the holistic nature of teaching;

2) Illustrate how a teacher's professional judgment is reflected in action; and

3) Describe how the standards come to life in different settings.


National Board Standards are periodically revised to reflect advances in the field, research and best practice. This is the first time Career and Technical Education Standards are being revised and ACTE was pleased to participate in a stakeholder meeting early in the revision process which contributed to the committee's deliberations.

If the standards are truly to represent the consensus of the field, a large response rate from CTE practitioners is needed. ACTE urges you to participate during the comment period!
