To set learners up for success, all CTE programs and programs of study should be aligned with industries and occupations that are in demand, offer family sustaining wages and require advanced skills. In the past decade, many states have driven system-wide efforts to further CTE program alignment, and Perkins V provides even more opportunities to strengthen CTE programs. In this session, state leaders will discuss different approaches and strategies for aligning CTE programs with labor market needs as well as the challenges and lessons they encountered along the way.
