ESA Proudly Celebrates Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month®
February is Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month®, a public awareness campaign that takes place to celebrate the value of Career Technical Education and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs across the country.
CTE is education that directly prepares students for high-wage, high-demand careers. From classroom learning, certification programs and work-based learning opportunities outside the classroom, CTE encompasses many different types of education. These programs are crucial to help ready the future workforce.
Over the last few years, ESA’s National Training School has been working with CTE schools to help promote the electronic security and fire life safety industry as a viable career path by helping students get a taste for the excitement of working in such a dynamic, innovative industry as ours and what it can do for them.
Some of our outreach has been:
-Partnering with high schools to incorporate NTS Training into their programs
-Working with high schools, career and vocational schools and adult education programs to promote the industry as a career path after graduation
-Attending Job Fairs to represent the industry
If you would like to get involved in representing the industry to a CTE School in your area, please contact Tracy Dalrymple firstname.lastname@example.org
