Preparing Workers for Successful Careers
Reese, Susan
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v85 n5 p16-21 May 2010
No doubt career and technical education (CTE) is integral in preparing a skilled workforce for today's jobs. Hands-on training is an important element of the CTE classroom, and when that occurs in an actual workplace setting, it may be called internship, apprenticeship or cooperative education. Whatever term is applied, it is another way in which CTE is preparing the new workforce. In this article, four programs are profiled highlighting the success of CTE in Maryland, Florida, Utah, and Oregon, in the fields, respectively, of automotive, health care, biotechnology and sustainability. (Contains 9 online resources.)
