11 Licensing standards Industry standards State standards CTSO competitive events Employability standards Company-specific standards 21 st century skills Locally developed standards CCSS Industry certificates Industry certifications State standards Career Cluster knowledge and skills Postsecondary degree requirements Education consortia standards Creating Order Out of Chaos

12 Developed by states for states

13 What is the Common Career Technical Core? State-led initiative to establish a shared set of high-quality Career Technical Education standards Includes: –a set of program-of study, benchmark content standards for each of the 16 Career Clusters ® and 79 Career Pathways –an overarching set of Career Ready Practices



16 Why the interest in CTE? Focus on jobs + Economic/labor market projections + Failure of “single pathway to success”+ Evidence of success = Increased visibility for CTE
