GoBuild Georgia Builds on Essential Career Readiness Skills

As a part of our governor's initiative to vastly enhance workforce development in the state of Georgia, an office was created to implement the Go Build Georgia program. The purpose of the program is to help dispel the myth of working in a skilled trade, appreciate the value of earning a skilled trade, and encourage them to build a career as tradesmen.

The most recent development in the Go Build Georgia program is the establishment of the Go Build Georgia High School teams. The teams are comprised of educators and industry leaders with the goal of promoting career paths in the skilled trades by hosting skilled trade career days and industry site visits, and getting the word out about the program. As my high school's team leader and a school guidance counselor, I have the opportunity to advise students regarding their career goals, discover new careers, and be introduced to opportunities in the skilled trades. The ultimate outcome would be highly skilled employees for businesses and enhanced economic development for Georgia and the nation as a whole.

Educators in Action

Literacy + CTE = College and Career Readiness

Each year, I always like to step outside my box and attend a professional development training that does not specifically relate to my career path. This year, I chose to attend an institute that was hosted by our state department of education. I am happy to report that it was well worth my time.

GACTE Continues to be on the Cusp of Great Things

The Georgia Association of Career and Technical Education serves as a platform to foster leadership, program development, advocacy, policy development, professional development, and networking opportunities for its members in Georgia. Over 2,500 members attended the conference with the premise of promoting career and technical education.
