Educators gathered to celebrate the return of ACTE’s CareerTech VISION

 At ACTE’s CareerTech VISION 2021, career and technical education (CTE) gathered for a joyful reunion. What a year it was! Thank you, and thank you again, for your support. You continue to show up — in New Orleans, Louisiana, from your homes and offices, and in your contributions toTechniques — to help advance the mission of ACTE.

To provide educational leadership in developing a competitive workforce

The VISION experience empowers educators to develop and deliver high-quality CTE programs of study that serve all learners. In the Big Easy and on the virtual platform, CTE leaders shared insights and expertise as they led hundreds of educational program sessions. Featured content addressed the topics that matter most in secondary and postsecondary CTE today, including the importance of culturally responsive teaching, recruitment and retention of key faculty, strategies for success amid an ongoing pandemic, and more.

CareerTech VISION witnessed diverse groups of educators collaborate, learn & grow together.

As we look forward, persisting in our work to create more equitable learning opportunities, we also want to reflect. Two years have passed since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and CTE stands strong. Together — at VISION and National Policy Seminar, during CTE Month (sponsored in 2022 by the National Association of Home Builders) and all year long — we grow stronger. When we have opportunities to connect, collaborate and simply have fun, those moments can help us remember our why.

ACTE remains grateful for you. Yes, you. We hope you enjoyed your experience at ACTE’s CareerTech VISION 2021.

See you Nov. 30–Dec.3 in Las Vegas for CareerTech VISION 2022!
