Ohio ACTE and The Center for Work Ethic Development (CWED) have formed a partnership to benefit career-technical and adult educators and help them prepare students for the workforce and their career.
“We often hear from our business partners in CTE that students need to understand the importance of ‘soft skills’ like showing up on time ready to work,” says Christine Gardner, Ohio ACTE Executive Director. “The Center for Work Ethic Development is focused on how to instill those ideals in students of all ages,” she says. Ohio ACTE has had a relationship with The Center for Work Ethic Development for the last two years, highlighting their work at the Annual Conference, she added.
The Center for Work Ethic Development is the nation's only institution focused on the research and advancement of work ethic for individuals and organizations. Based on a landmark study with 1,500 hiring managers, their research has defined the work ethic behaviors that drive job placement, performance, and retention.
The Bring Your A Game to Work curriculum is being used by more than 500 locations across the country, and making a difference in the lives of thousands of students.
Through this partnership, Ohio ACTE will provide research and resources for teachers and administrators to better prepare students for success. Look for articles, training webinars, workshops, and product discounts for Ohio ACTE members.
