The Minnesota chapter of the Association of Career & Technical Education (CTE) updated their fact sheet this month, with gains in graduation rates for CTE concentrators and recommending “more investment to scale CTE programs to ensure that all learners, including historically underserved learners, have access to high-quality CTE programs in high-skill, high-wage and in-demand career fields.”
Infobase offers resources to support this trend, including Ferguson’s Career Guidance Center, with apprenticeships, internships, and career exploration to go with its college prep content and tools. Cutting-edge careers have been added to Ferguson’s, supplementing listings on the most popular and in-demand professions. The company’s Classroom Video on Demand for Career & Technical Education streaming service also includes thousands of videos and clips on trades, STEM disciplines, and industry overviews.
