Aligned by Design: WIOA and Career and Technical Education
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) goes into effect on July 1, 2015, and offers new opportunities for the workforce system and Career and Technical Education (CTE) to work together. Whether a state creates a “Combined Plan” that includes WIOA and the State Plan for Perkins, or a state writes a “Unified Plan,” the state should consider how these programs can best work together to prepare individuals for careers that meet employer skill needs. This webinar discusses some key areas where alignment can occur.
