AYPF IS HIRING
We are now accepting intern applications for the Spring and Summer 2020 Research/Policy Internship.
RESOURCES & PUBLICATIONS
This Capitol Hill forum, co-sponsored by MDRC, presented leading research on CTE and analysis of the evolving workforce needs which have influenced the development of innovative CTE strategies. Presenters shared both an overview of the research and innovative strategies in CTE at both the secondary and postsecondary levels that have strong employer partners and are informed by research.
The College and Career Readiness and Success Center (CCRS Center) hosted a dynamic panel discussion about the preparation of career and technical education (CTE) teachers to include and support students with disabilities. Panelists discussed the impact of current CTE educator preparation on states and districts; state practices such as micro credentialing, alternative certification, co-teaching, cooperatives and other models; and considerations and recommendations for improving CTE success for students with disabilities.
