CNA Talks: A National Security Podcast

Feb 8, 2017

To recognize National Career and Technical Education Month 2017, CNA Education staff sat down to discuss the importance of CTE and its role in workforce development. As the demand for employees with more sophisticated technical, academic and employability skills has risen, so has the importance of strong CTE programs for improving college and career readiness. Our Education division started a STEMwire Initiative to provide the rigorous research and technical assistance needed to strengthen the research base on CTE and support current and developing CTE programs, particularly those focusing on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).

Podcast topics included:

  • Promising trends in CTE and innovative, successful practices in CTE classrooms
  • Successful industry-CTE partnerships and the next frontier for CTE
  • The Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act and legislative reforms at the federal, state and/or local levels that support improvements in CTE
  • CNA Education work related to high-wage, high demand jobs and the gaps within the CTE research realm
