Wednesday, April 27, 2016 -- Brianna Pyka

The economy is changing—and education must change with it in order to prepare students for success in the workforce. It's no surprise that skilled trades are the hardest jobs to fill in the United States; by 2020, 66% of jobs will require some post-secondary education. Career and Technical Education (CTE) is one solution that addresses this need by connecting learners to real-world experience while at the same time preparing them for in-demand careers.

Edmentum’s Plato Courseware, featuring an extensive library of CTE courses covering all 16 career clusters, can help facilitate dynamic partnerships with educators and students. Our learning platform provides educators with current standards-aligned CTE curriculum, including customizable content resources to prepare every learner to be college and career ready.
