In a response to the growing needs for high-quality CTE programs, the Illinois Career Connections project will deliver two multi-disciplinary regional conferences throughout the state focusing on three overarching goals:
1. Improvement of instruction
2. Better alignment to core academics
3. Enhanced connections to career and postsecondary opportunities
Integral features of the 2022 IL Career Connections Conference will include hands-on and innovative learning opportunities that highlight various components of interdisciplinary education accentuated through CTE, including exploratory sessions, hands-on workshops, networking opportunities, and industry-led partnerships, among others.
