Strategies for Increasing Girls Participation in Nontraditional CTE Programs

Friday, May 17
10:00 am – 10:45 am

$35.00 Registration Fee

As a way to eliminate gender discrimination in schools, Title IX prohibited discrimination in career and technical education (CTE) classrooms. Forty years later, male students continue to predominate in courses that lead to many high-skill, high-wage jobs, while female students make up the majority in the low-wage, low-skill programs. These enrollment patterns reflect, at least in part, the persistence of sex stereotyping and discrimination. Girls still remain under-represented in Career and Technical Education program nationally and here in Oregon.  Join educators, advocates and experts to learn what resources and tools program work to attract girls to CTE programs without violating guidelines under Title IX.  Continuing Professional Development Units are pending approval.

Understanding and Accessing Apprenticeship for Educators and Counselors

Friday, May 17
11:00 am – 11:45 am

$35.00 Registration Fee

The Registered Apprenticeship system has been utilized to meet the needs of America’s skilled workforce for over 80 years. It is a unique, flexible training system that combines job-related technical instruction with structured on-the-job learning experiences. Upon completion of a Registered Apprenticeship program, participants receive an industry-issued, nationally-recognized credential that certifies occupational proficiency, is portable, and can provide a pathway to the middle class. In many cases, these programs provide apprentices with the opportunity to simultaneously obtain secondary and post-secondary degrees. Join industry experts in learning more about the way apprenticeship works, and how you can support students to earn “the other 4-year degree” without the college tuition debt! Continuing Professional Development Units pending approval.
