Emerging CTE Teachers


Help for Emerging Teachers

Career & Technical Education programs are fortunate to have lateral entry teachers - those who come from business and industry with a strong understanding of the content they're teaching.

lateralBut lateral entry teachers face many challenges as they begin their new careers in the classroom. Knowing the content is not enough. New teachers must learn how to engage students, follow educational requirements, collaborate with peers.

Working through state-level partnerships, The Centers for Quality Teaching and Learning offers intensive professional development that helps new CTE teachers navigate all those challenges.

Administrators in other states who recognize a need for lateral teacher preparation are encouraged to to discuss how The Centers for Quality Teaching and Learning can help.
