CTE: Developing the Media & Entertainment Workforce Posted: 07 Oct 2016 06:00 AM PDT
Did you know that job opportunities are predicted to increase by more than 13 percent in the next few years for writers, multimedia and graphic designers, and audiovisual equipment technicians? ACTE’s latest Sector Sheet explores CTE’s role in developing a skilled, adaptable workforce in media and entertainment. This one-pager describes projections for the workforce in media and entertainment, and details how CTE prepares high school, postsecondary and adult students for careers in this sector through CTE courses, career and technical student organizations, work-based learning experiences and more. With this new publication, our Sector Sheet series has grown to include 13 publications on CTE and its role in developing various industry sectors. We encourage you to share these advocacy tools with business, policymakers, education leaders and the public to illustrate how CTE supports specific industries and prepares students for in-demand careers.
