The System Office seeks applications for faculty-teacher development grants to enhance teaching and learning strategies in career and technical education (CTE) programs. These planning grants will serve one of three purposes: collaboration between secondary and postsecondary instructors; improving student success and transitions and utilizing successful models to improve student learning in CTE.
Several successful strategies have been implemented at the secondary and postsecondary level, which have been key drivers of change in student performance, encouraging participation and supporting successful completion. In this grant project, utilization of “what works” and implementation of a sustainable initiative are highly sought for these pilot incentive grants. The purpose of this RFP is to invite Perkins Consortium to build innovated methods for improving the participation and completion of students in nontraditional career programs of study. The use of data to drive selected strategies and to document improved student success are critical. These incentive grant funds are intended to support consortia efforts to improve student success of special populations but more specifically in nontraditional CTE performance.
