The Career and Technical Education Division of the Office of Public Instruction would like to invite you to attend one of the five regional trainings being provided on the new work-based learning management system, CTE Manager. This online system will allow teachers, employers, students, parents and administrators to better monitor the work-based learning that is occurring in and out of classrooms across Montana. We at the OPI are rolling out the CTE Manager on a state wide, two-year trial, to help local programs emphasize the importance of work-based learning for all CTE students, and provide an easy way of tracking students’ progress and skill growth.

This training will be for Career and Technical Education Teachers, Administrators, School Counselors, or Work Based Learning Coordinators to learn about the CTE Manager Online system. The training will provide them with information on how to use the system, how to train teachers, as well as student and employers. These will be regional trainings provided to schools at no cost. We realize that not all of your teachers may be able to attend, but we encourage every school with a Career and Technical Education Program to send a representative to one of the trainings. Those in attendance will receive four hours of OPI renewal units. Please share with your appropriate staff.
