Introduction

Colorado Career & Technical Education (CTE) is developing a state strategic plan that considers our unique landscape and opportunities over the next five years. The plan will help ensure we provide learners access to quality CTE programs that are aligned with industry demand and lead to high wage, high demand, and high skilled employment. The plan will also identify barriers and opportunities in our current systems. The Colorado CTE vision and strategic plan will provide a new direction for the role of CTE – not as just academic and technical preparation - but as a complete and robust experience that prepares learners for their career, life, and civic leadership.
 
Six regional meetings were held throughout Colorado in February 2019. 280 stakeholders, including parents, and representatives from business and industry; community organizations; workforce and economic development agencies; and education (secondary and postsecondary) attended.
 
Goals of these meetings included:
1) Share information on the CO CTE visioning and strategic planning process.
2) Collect feedback on how to improve the state CTE system as a component of Colorado’s talent strategy.
3) Establish mutually beneficial relationships with stakeholders for feedback on CO CTE’s strategic plan.
 
The questions that follow were asked discussed during the regional meetings. Please provide feedback on any or all to inform the future of CO CTE. Questions center on the following: 
  • Career Exploration & Development
  • Future of Work
  • Perceptions of CTE & Skill-Based Careers
  • Transitioning from Education to Careers
  • Work-Based Learning
