Thursday, July 30, 2015Printer-friendly version


In 2015, Achieve partnered with the National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Consortium (NASDCTEc) to convene state leaders to discuss the intersections between CBP and career and technical education (CTE) systems. This brief identifies opportunities for collaboration, integration, and strengthened relationships between CBP and CTE leaders. It explores the leverage points and challenges to integrating CTE into a CBP system, and where possible, offers examples of how states and local districts have started the journey to do so. Key questions are provided to help state and local leaders consider how CTE is, can, and should be a part of their CBP strategies.
