ACTEAZ Podcast: CTE and the Real World

Episode 1: Workforce Development

ACTEAZ is hosting a series of podcasts on the topic of Career Technical Education (CTE) and Workforce Development. Conversations with experts will allow listeners to learn about Arizona’s job market and how Arizona schools are preparing students for careers that match hiring needs.

Join us in this first episode as we hear from Lindsay Duran (ACTEAZ, Chandler Unified School District), Erin McGehean (Center for the Future of Arizona), and Jennifer Kaufman Fourness (Maricopa Community Colleges) about CTE programs in schools, how they prep students for the workforce and can help students begin their careers while they are still in school.
