Each year, the CTE Resource Center assists the Virginia Department of Education in developing curriculum-related publications that address specific courses or programs, encourage collaboration between career/technical and academic disciplines, foster collaboration between CTE at the secondary and postsecondary levels, correlate with national standards and industry certification requirements, and enhance comprehensive school-improvement efforts. Staff members perform research, facilitate curriculum development teams and technical panels to incorporate business/industry input, write, edit, organize, design, produce, and distribute the following materials:
- Validated task lists
- Curriculum frameworks
- Instructional aids
- Program marketing/recruitment aids
- Administrative guides
Teachers and administrators use these products as well as other Center resources to develop or improve local programs.
