Last year, the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) and the NSA Day of Cyber began a partnership to support both organizations’ goals of raising awareness of careers in STEM and cybersecurity.
Since then, both organizations have put their collaboration into action. LifeJourney’s NSA Day of Cyber executives presented ACTE’s national VISION conference and several state conferences, and ACTE has done the same at the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education conference.
Dr. Paul Asunda, the leader of ACTE’s Engineering and Technology Education Division, has worked to build awareness of the NSA Day of Cyber within his field and encourages all CTE educators to take advantage of the fully-funded NSA Day of Cyber online career exploration platform.
February is Career and Technical Education Month (CTE Month), a time to celebrate the value of CTE and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs throughout the country.
This year, ACTE’s school visit at George C. Marshall High School in Falls Church, VA will focus on the school’s nationally recognized cybersecurity program. There are many resources available on ACTE’s CTE Month webpage for those who wish to get the word out about strong cybersecurity programs during CTE Month and throughout the year, such as tips for holding school and site visits and reaching out to policymakers, business leaders, and the media.
ACTE also strongly urges all CTE Educators to take advantage of the fully-funded NSA Day of Cyber online career exploration platform.
