Today’s students will be graduating into a world that is ever more interconnected. One in ten Americans is foreign born, and local communities—urban, suburban, and rural—are growing more diverse. To take advantage of global market opportunities, companies want employees with the knowledge and skills to work across cultures. The challenge for career and technical education (CTE) teachers is to prepare their students to compete, connect, and cooperate on an international scale.
The Asia Society’s Center for Global Education in partnership with ACTE and Advance CTE, through funding from PMI Educational Foundation has created a customizable, 10–12 hour, online course and toolkit for middle and secondary school CTE teachers. This new, free professional development course and toolkit, “Global Competence Through Career and Technical Education,” is available for teachers who would like to embed Global Education into their coursework. Additionally, educators can earn two Continuing Education Units upon completion of the course.
