Career and Technical Education (CTE) equips students with 21st-century skills to prepare them for viable careers in high-growth industries. Because CTE is on the rise, there is an increasing need for comprehensive training opportunities in these industries. According to the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE):

✻ The top 10 hardest-to-fill jobs include skilled trade positions.
✻ Healthcare occupations make up 12 of the 20 fastest-growing occupations.
✻ There are one million jobs open in trade, transportation, and utilities sectors, and 315,000 jobs in manufacturing.
✻ Middle-skill jobs that require education and training beyond school, but less than a bachelor’s degree, make up a significant part of the economy and workforce.

But in West Virginia, a new Personalized Career Readiness System from WIN Learning is playing a critical role in helping high school students across the state persist and complete high school, and prepare for the postsecondary education and workforce training that will be critical to the state’s future economic success.
