ACTE Releases Issue Brief Outlining Critical Role CTE Plays in Worker Retraining

However, the number of job openings nationally increased by 30 percent between July 2009 and July 2010.

These new employment opportunities usually require knowledge and skills that unemployed workers either don't possess or have not developed because they weren't needed in previous positions. Adults participating in CTE worker retraining programs can earn industry certifications, certificates or degrees through short-term and accelerated programs and flexible learning approaches that allow them to compete in today's workforce.

"Our economy is facing a critical juncture in the recovery process, but unfortunately, many unemployed or underemployed workers lack the skills necessary for the new high-demand jobs that are available," said ACTE Executive Director Jan Bray. "It's important for education leaders and policy makers to recog
