CTE Vision Tool Kit

The CTE Vision Tool Kit has been assembled to help you share the CTE Vision with the CTE community and other important audiences for the express purpose of promoting understanding, awareness and support for quality CTE. Inside the tool kit you’ll find a number of valuable resources, specially designed to support your efforts—and underscore the importance of CTE for students, businesses and industry, our economy…in fact, the entire nation.

Here are the tools:

  • The CTE vision is defined by five guiding principles in Reflect, Transform, Lead: A New Vision for CTE. Collectively, the principles serve as guideposts for the CTE community to set priorities and make decisions affecting CTE programs, policies and priorities—and to chart a new course for CTE and the nation in the 21st century.

  • CTE: Making the Difference is a high-energy 3-minute video highlighting the many ways CTE is working for America, Real facts and faces that are making a difference.

  • Five full-color CTE vision posters available for download—one for each of the five vision principles: Global Competition, Employer Partnerships, College & Career Readiness, Career Readiness, and Return on Investment. Large (24 x 36”) and small (8.5x11”) versions of each poster are available.

  • Use either the short or long version. Both come with talking points, templates and instructions for how you can personalize your presentation for any audience.

  • This five-part series dedicates an issue brief to each of NASDCTEc’s core principles for CTE: Global competition, partnership with employers, career preparation, alignment with the National Career Clusters Framework, and commitment to CTE return-on-investment.

  • Why not add the CTE: Making the Difference mini-ad to your website—and give visitors direct access to the CTE video and fact sheets? Help us spread the word. This makes it easy.
