Not Every Career Starts after College


More than half of US employers report a skills gap as a result of a mismatch between worker skills and industry needs. Blended Career Technical Education (CTE) programs can mitigate this crisis by arming students with real-world skills to succeed in the modern workplace. CTE programs also provide a high quality education for students that might not otherwise be able to attain one and may drop out. Completion of a CTE program can yield high-value, industry-recognized certifications and immediate opportunities for internships and high-demand, high-paying jobs. Hear from a top Digital Education Executive on how a cutting-edge CTE program can be incorporated into schools around the nation.
