The State of Employer Engagement in CTE

From its earliest roots, employer engagement has been a part of CTE's legacy. Yet little is known about what is really happening consistently and systematically across the country, and what state leaders can do to accelerate effective engagement. 

Advance CTE conducted a survey of the State CTE Directors to better understand how and in what ways employers are engaging in CTE today - or the "state" of employer engagement in CTE across the nation. This report - The State of Career Technical Education: Employer Engagement in CTE - highlights the survey's results and seeks to illustrate the employer engagement landscape with a particular focus on the ways in which states are and can foster and sustain meaningful employer engagement to strengthen their CTE system for all students.
