This Issue Brief explores the essential role that CTE programs
play in addressing many of the issues faced by unemployed and
underemployed workers. These programs target the adult learner
through short-term and accelerated courses, utilize flexible
learning approaches to account for students’ other responsibilities,
include wraparound support services to increase student
success and concentrate on high-demand career areas to ensure students are prepared for jobs that exist in local economies. December 2010 ACTE is the sole source for this product.
