Career and technical education (CTE) is an important component of the modern American education system. Beyond a concentration in science, math, cultures, and literature, today’s students and parents seek a clear connection between learning and meaningful future employment. And employers expect those entering the workforce to be skilled and ready to work. CTE programs emphasize career readiness and promote skills needed for high-demand fields, enabling students to build successful careers and employers to find qualified staff.
We understand that CTE is comprehensive—a good program not only focuses on career and technical knowledge but also develops life skills, features hands-on learning, applies academic rigor, encourages student choice, and prioritizes successful student outcomes. We also know that CTE reflects local needs and that the development of CTE materials requires subject matter expertise and an individualized approach.
Our team helps publishers, ed tech companies, and other providers of CTE materials develop engaging student, teacher, and assessment resources. We assist clients in creating and enhancing curricular components for several essential areas of CTE:
- Career Exploration and Work-Based Learning Success
- Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources
- Business Management and Administration, Finance, and Marketing
- Health Sciences
- Information Technology
- Restaurant and Food/Beverage Services
We understand the CTE market. We recognize the unmet need for CTE materials addressing rapidly growing and crucial spheres such as allied health, food production, and cybersecurity.
We are selective. Our team is led by Debbie Allen, an educational publishing industry veteran who understands how to make career and technical content accessible to student audiences. Debbie relies on a broad network of vetted subject matter experts, writers, and editors enthusiastic about CTE work. These individuals have expertise in specific career clusters and use that expertise to bring depth, creativity, authority, and authenticity to the materials we create for our clients.
We develop exemplary products. As an active participant in the industry, we bring a collective and deep knowledge of trends, legislative awareness, and educational experience to the CTE work we produce. We’ve worked with companies like CareerPath and other print and digital providers to develop engaging products that will help students explore high-demand careers along the national pathways. Our personalized approach ensures that each client’s vision and requirements are met, on time and within budget.
