Advancing a New Image of CTE Via Teacher Preparation

Publication Heather Boggs SassApril 2011

There is perhaps no better place to start in advancing a new image of career and technical education (CTE) than by creating the kind of classroom instruction that will prepare students for further learning and the workplace. The quality of our teachers and their capacity to construct rich learning experiences for students represents the “front line” of our work in CTE. Teachers shape the learning experiences that produce competent and confident graduates who are ready to begin their career paths; well-trained graduates are both advocates and evidence that the field is truly living up to a new image.
