• Career Exploration and Development with a Focus on Implicit Bias

    Brought to you by ASCA and Advance CTE.

    A successful career advising and development system must respond to learners’ interests and provide career awareness and exploration for all – not just those enrolled in career technical education (CTE). Such a system must seamlessly span the full career advising and development continuum from elementary through postsecondary and include wraparound services, accelerated learning strategies and connections with local employers to ensure smooth transitions into the labor market.
