Promoting Work-Based Learning: Efforts in Connecticut and Kentucky
Alliance for Excellent Education
In the summer of 2012, the National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Consortium (NASDCTEc) and the Alliance for Excellent Education conducted a survey of State Directors of Career Technical Education (CTE) to gauge state efforts to better connect CTE with a larger college- and career-readiness agenda. Survey questions spanned a range of issues, including whether each state had developed a definition of career readiness, the number of career academies in each state, and what states are doing to formally identify and remove barriers to work-based learning opportunities in policy and practice. This brief includes a short description of efforts from two states--Connecticut and Kentucky--to define work-based learning opportunities for youth participants, educators, and employers, and to create policies that provide greater access to these opportunities. (Contains 1 table and 11 endnotes.)
