CTE Plan Strategies
The Alaska CTE Plan aligns program planning with anticipated workforce needs and stresses integration of program elements providing for smooth transitions to higher levels of education and training. This plan identifies the six strategies listed below:
Make transitions planned and accountable for both successful student progress and systemic cooperation.
Align curricula at all training institutions to meet current industry standards - including academic, professional, and technical skills - from elementary through secondary to postsecondary and professional development levels.
Identify and promote career and technical education delivery models that ensure that all Alaskans have the opportunity to attain the knowledge and skills needed for further training and careers.
Recruit, develop, support, and retain high-quality CTE teachers and faculty.
Maximize the use of public facilities for training.
Establish and maintain sustainable funding mechanisms for a successful CTE system for youth and adults.
The Value of Career and Technical Education
Career and Technical Education is a process where individuals identify interests, determine career goals, and develop the personal, academic and technical skills and abilities to accomplish those goals. In a world and workplace that is rapidly changing and evolving, successful job seekers need to develop these strategies early and will use them continuously throughout their careers.
A successful CTE program combines the development of personal, academic and technical skills into an integrated whole that demonstrates the relevance of all these areas in achieving an individual’s personal goals. CTE provides opportunities for students to set long-term goals, determine the steps necessary to achieve those goals, and a process to complete the necessary steps that combines continuing education and workplace experience in a sequenced, combined continuum.
Alaska Career and Technical Education Plan
Leadership of both departments (DOLWD and EED), and University of Alaska President recognizes that any comprehensive plan needs to incorporate both the educational needs of students and the workforce needs of the state. By joining forces and working together, the state will make better use of its resources and be more assured of the qualified workforce needs to stay competitive in the global economy. The Alaska CTE Plan incorporates and values the strategies found in both the Alaska Education Plan and the Gasline Training Plan.
