Dear CTE teachers, coordinators, and administrators,
Good news! The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has introduced a pathway for students who want to pursue teaching as a career. The new Education & Training pathway template (or map) has been developed by a statewide group of education and training professionals. As with all Regional Career Pathways (RCPs), the regions tailor the map to their portion of the state, and then individual districts further tailor it to their local needs and employers.
The template provides the elements of a quality CTE framework: a sequence of courses, dual credit opportunities, work-based learning, and industry-recognized credentials. The pathway also includes career and technical student organizations (CTSOs), which may include any of the federally recognized CTSOs: DECA, FBLA, FCCLA, FFA, HOSA, and SkillsUSA. Plus, new chapters of Educators Rising are bringing together and supporting students who want to teach as a career.
