The National Center for Innovation in Career and Technical Education (NCICTE) performs scientifically based research and evaluation to expand the understanding, increase the effectiveness, and improve the delivery of career and technical education (CTE).
Center work is directed toward exploring the contribution that CTE can make to raising student engagement and achievement and improving student transitions from secondary to postsecondary education and work.
NCICTE’s currently featured report is Connecting Secondary Career and Technical Education andRegistered Apprenticeship: A Profile of Six State Systems.
From the Introduction:
Career and technical education (CTE) programs support high school students in gaining the academic, technical, and employability skills necessary to pursue entry-level employment and to enroll in postsecondary education or advanced workforce training. Registered Apprenticeship (RA) programs offered within secondary CTE give students access to high-quality, occupation-directed training that combines classroom instruction with applied and, in some cases, intensive WBL opportunities. To help clarify the association between CTE and RA, this report reviews the programmatic, administrative, and financial policies that six states—Connecticut, Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina, Rhode Island, and Washington—have developed to link the two programs.
