Career Technical Education (CTE)
On April 28, 2016, representatives of twelve agencies of the Federal government signed a joint letter announcing that the Federal partnership regarding Career Pathways has been expanded and strengthened. The agencies represented are the U.S. Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education (Career, Technical, and Adult Education; Special Education and Rehabilitative Services), Energy, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Justice, Labor, and Transportation, and the Social Security Administration.
This historic cross-agency Federal collaboration on Career Pathways will play a critical role in scaling Career Pathways nationally. As the letter indicates, its purpose is to provide "updated information and resources from the expanded Federal partnership to help States, regions, local entities, and tribal communities integrate service delivery across Federal and State funding streams." The letter also "ensures that interested partners and agencies—whether focused on education, workforce development, or human and social services—are aware of this joint commitment for improved collaboration and coordination across programs and funding sources."
