Certifying High-Quality CTE Educators
Gaal, John; Wermes, Andrew
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v86 n1 p40-43 Jan 2011
The Association for Skilled and Technical Sciences (ASTS) serves as the professional organization for Trade and Industrial Education (T&I) teachers. As part of its mission, ASTS is committed to providing leadership, voice and support for its membership. Nearly one year ago, driven by its concern that federal or state education agencies should not independently establish and dictate quality benchmarks for the T&I education profession, the ASTS Board of Directors (BOD) determined that it would be in the best interests of its membership to define what constitutes a high-quality career and technical education (CTE) educator. This article looks at the ASTS' initiative to establish CTE teacher certification. ASTS brought together subject matter experts (SMEs) to develop a relevant and rigorous certification program.
