6 Outcomes New teachers need to be facilitators of learning and take an integrated approach to project-based learning Almost all new CTE teachers come from business and industry Add-on certifications are growing fast Alternative forms of certification are popular, but must be quality teacher training CTE teachers need technical area validation National Level Research
