Please complete this survey by April 6, 2017. You are welcome to forward this message to others with an interest in career and technical education.
By participating in this brief survey, you can assist in efforts to improve Alaska’s career and technical education system and help ensure that Alaskans have the education and training to meet our state’s industry needs.
In 2009 the Department of Labor and Workforce Development (DOLWD), the Department of Education and Early Development (DEED), and the University of Alaska (UA) worked together to develop Alaska’s first plan for Career and Technical Education or CTE (formerly known as vocational education). This original plan, finalized in 2010, was developed in recognition of the need for a stronger system to meet both the educational needs of students and adults and the real needs of our workforce.
The Alaska Workforce Investment Board (AWIB), in coordination with DOLWD, DEED, and UA, has formed a Workgroup of board members and other education leaders to review Alaska’s 2010 Career and Technical Education (CTE) Plan and create an addendum to it. With this effort, the Workgroup intends to:
- ignite dialogue around career and technical education,
- examine the strategies outlined in the 2010 CTE plan, and
- raise awareness of CTE and its important role in preparing Alaskans for both personal success and meeting our state’s workforce demands.
Please contact Allison if you have any questions about the survey or the AWIB Workgroup’s effort.
