Edgenuity, a leading provider of online and blended learning solutions, today announced a new offering of Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses designed to prepare students for job readiness in the 21st century. A multi-year progression divided into three phases – Explorations, Career Planning and Life Skills, and Pathways – leads students from identifying their career interests in middle school all the way to planning for professional certification in high school. The full suite of instructional and elective blended learning offerings are also aligned to iNACOL standards.
“It is essential to prepare students not only for academic achievement, but also for the career and life skills they will need after graduation,” noted Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity. “The right mix of academic and career-focused programs can give students a jump start on preparing for the high demand jobs of the future. Our new CTE offerings ensure that students can assess their career interests early on, learn the professional skills they need to succeed, and begin to train for a career path even before they enter college or the workforce.”
Edgenuity’s philosophy of engaging, interactive curriculum is embedded within its new CTE curriculum. Video segments featuring real teachers and industry experts guide students through concepts and skills with visual support, dispersing instructional content through interactive tasks, vocabulary-building tools and project-based assessments.
