    test scores worthless predictors of successful employees Just as internships are valuable experiences for students teacher externships can be incredible opportunities that may be key in helping connect classroom curriculum to the modern workplace Given the typical capacity issues for work based learning 3 million teacher externships would be the equivalent of more than 50 million student internships Businesses also value a stronger partnership with higher education Currently only 13 percent of business leaders think there is a great deal of collaboration between higher education and employers while almost 90 percent favor an increased level of collaboration What implications does this research have for CTE High quality CTE programs provide all the opportunities Busteed called essential to student success a focus on employability skills and technical skills mentorship through work based learning and curriculum that is made relevant by tying learning to the real world Busteed left the group with a final charge the CTE community needs to better communicate career technical education not as option B but instead as a staple of all students educational experience To

in Meetings and Events NASDCTEc Fall Meeting Research Resources Comments Off Welcome to new Delaware State CTE Director Luke Rhine October 16th 2014 We are pleased to welcome Delaware s new State Director of Career Technical Education Luke Rhine State Director Rhine s career in CTE began as a career technical educator After years in the classroom he transitioned into leadership as a program specialist with the Maryland State Department of Education building statewide programs of study in Manufacturing Engineering and Technology as well as Arts Media and Communication He moved into his current role as State CTE Director of Delaware late this summer With his on the ground experience as an engineering CTE instructor and years spent programming in Maryland State Director Rhine understands the crossover between CTE and traditional core courses He highlights aligning CTE and academic courses particularly STEM as a key touchpoint for the development of CTE in Delaware and across the country State Director Rhine sees Delaware as uniquely positioned to exploit the integration of CTE and traditional courses as the state already requires public school students to complete a career pathway three credits in a related area in addition to the courses traditionally required for high school graduation This requirement he says is usually met with a mix of CTE and relevant academics The entire process is mapped out within the framework of a customizable five year student success plan providing flexibility in the development of career pathways while emphasizing the importance of long term pathway planning Learn more about Delaware CTE here and be sure to welcome State Director Rhine at the 2014 Fall Meeting Evan Williamson Communications Associate Tags Delaware

works for Idaho It s crucial to connect systems and create more seamless transitions between education providers he said in an interview with NASDCTEc last month During the same conversation State Director Johnson repeatedly cited the need to integrate CTE with workforce development priorities and workforce data to ensure that at every level secondary postsecondary and beyond CTE serves students and stakeholders reliably and adaptively Learn more about Idaho CTE here and welcome State Director Johnson at the 2014 Fall Meeting Evan Williamson Communications Associate Posted in Meetings and Events NASDCTEc State Director Comments Off Recapping the National Dialogue on Career Pathways September 26th 2014 On September 23 2014 the U S Departments of Education Labor and Health and Human Services brought together a diverse array of stakeholders including NASDCTEc President Scott Stump for a day of discussion around the future of the career pathways movement Looking to build on the momentum surrounding the recent passage and ongoing implementation of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act WIOA the day presented a diverse array of stakeholders with the opportunity to describe the promise of career pathways as well as the challenges inherent in implementing a system that touches education workforce development and social services It was a day full of constructive dialogue reinforcing the notion that people at all levels of the process are ready to work together to make sure students are both college and career ready upon graduation The event began by

the modern economy noting the repeated references to career pathways in the Vice President s report Ready to Work Job Driven Training and American Opportunity Citing their ongoing work in encouraging
