The project will develop a multi-pronged approach to marketing CTE programs regionally and will leverage regional efforts with statewide “projects in common” efforts related to branding and outreach to students and to employers. The statewide branding and outreach effort is already underway. The regional consortium will conduct research (phase 1) to gain a solid understanding of opportunities for developing a strategic approach and plan for communications within the four main stakeholder groups – students, colleges, third-party workforce development partners, and business and industry employers. Phase 1 will produce a comprehensive Communications Assessment, which will inform future phases of the regional marketing and outreach project.
