5Two Plan A’s“Every student deserves the same opportunity for success, whether they want to go to college or start their career right out of high school. This is not about a Plan A and a Plan B – this is about two Plan A’s. It advances the principle that all honest work is honorable work.” -Governor Mike Pence
6Establishment of CECIThe Center for Education and Career Innovation (CECI) was established by Governor Mike Pence via an Executive Order in August Its mission is to advance the learning outcomes for Hoosier students and adult workers by:aligning statewide efforts to connect the education and workforce training pipeline with the needs of Indiana’s employers, andsupporting the expansion of innovative and highly effective education and career development initiatives.
7Structure of CECICenter for Education and Career Innovation (CECI) staffs the Works Councils and also staffs the following:Indiana Career CouncilEducation RoundtableState Board of EducationCECI partners closely with CHE, DOE, DWD and other state agencies as well as philanthropic organizations and other statewide non-profits.Connectivity is critical. CECI is the hub that brings together the entire pipeline of education and training. Works council work is specific CTE and secondary, but its implications are beyond that because recommendations go up to career council, and input will carry over to workforce generally speaking. We are not leaving out the connectivity to postsecondary study even as we
8CECI Guiding Principles CECI’s guiding principles include:Supporting integrated service delivery that is student- and adult worker-centric, and is focused on defined outcomes.Ensuring Indiana’s educators are given the necessary freedom, support and flexibility to succeed in the classroom, and are rewarded for their successes. Fostering, identifying and scaling the most innovative and effective education and workforce models, tools and resources.Holding students, adult workers, educators, schools, higher education institutions and workforce programs accountable for their progress through rigorous, fair and transparent accountability systems.Eliminating silos and aligning resource allocation efforts in collaboration with public and private sector partners, providers and employers.

19CTE in IndianaWe have good building blocks already in place, and when DOE did that, they did it with industry at the table. A good framework. But we need to focus. If you look at LMI, we have a public policy decision to make about what we’re going to fund. Where are the credentials, are they getting it in volume that employers need. If not, what are we going to do about it? Kansas has done a lot of work in maximizing the number and nature of credentials that they can earn. They may have a list of certifications.

24Sector Strategies - Defined Sector-based strategies take a comprehensive, broad-based approach to identifying and addressing skills needs across key industries within a region rather than focusing on the workforce needs of individual employers on a case-by-case basis.Sector strategies often result in the formation of industry partnerships, which are employer-led partnerships with support from workforce development, economic development, and education partners.ECO15, Northeast Indiana Partnership, Advancing Manufacturing Initiative, etc.
25Focus of Sector Strategies Sector strategies harness industry intelligence to identify industry needs and design education and training resources to meet needs.Industry partnerships create plans to:Identify key skill needs of sector: certifications, credentials, degrees required for entry and promotion within sectorProvide input into the development of training programs to meet skill needs of sectorEstablish and support career pathways within sectorIdentify and align resources for education and training to support sectorEstablish strategies for measuring success and impact of sector-defined education and training strategiesThey serve to guide efficient investments of public resources and leverage private resources

36Evaluate CTE Opportunities Works Council will review the following:Talent PipelineEmployer DemandTeaming with FutureWorks to develop a supply and demand analysis, focusing on employer demand and supply of a qualified workforceProblem Statement: looking at cte classes and how they back up toward leading to career and credentials recognized in industry. They can take a lot of hours but no good if they don’t have a credential. Need employers to say that.equally we do want it to transfer over to postsecondary—needs to be applauded. See what kinds of transfers are happening. Crosswalks are critical. Stackable credentials/lifelong learning/stopping in and stopping out (on-ramps and off-ramps). Opportunity b/c we have so many students who take a course—how does that lend itself to students getting into career or postsecondary by region. How does that change the emphasis that teachers. NGA Last Week—VA wants all students to get an industry-recognized credential so that they can go into career or postsecodnary through crosswalk.
