Business and Industry Resources
Student success is the goal of all CTE programs. To achieve that success, they must deliver rigorous and relevant educational opportunities that incorporate real-world and hands-on situations. But these programs cannot deliver that desired outcome without the input and direction of the business community. Who knows better what employees need to know and be able to do than employers?
Businesses interested in working more closely with and providing guidance to ACTE can join us!
The key then is to bring business and education together so that what is being taught is of value to those who are hiring. In today's education system, there is no better place for that to happen than in CTE programs—the ultimate blending of classroom education and real-world skills. The trouble is, business and education don't always understand each other, and that can create barriers to success.
ACTE understands the important role the business community plays in successful CTE programs, and here you will find resources, tools and examples that can help both businesses and CTE programs come together more effectively for the benefit of students.
If there are other resources you would like to see added, or examples that you would like to share, please send them to Jim Waterhouse, ACTE's ads and exhibits manager, or call 703-683-9332.
