Non-Traditional Career s & Workplace Gender Balance Grant Strategic Plan 2009-2014

Strategic Guide (pdf)
  • Launched in 2009-2014, the goal is to directly impact practices and expectations within career and technical education (CTE) programs operated in the Colorado community colleges, technical colleges, and correctional facilities.
  • To indirectly influence the perceptions and expectations of potential students and employers.
  • The current decreasing trend of post-secondary CTE “non-traditional” participation will be reversed and continuously increase.
  • Non-traditional participants will complete the CTE program and achieve at the same rate as that of participants in all other CTE programs.
  • Working together, all CCCS student support services will work to impartially educate and encourage men and women on all career choices that might be considered a non-traditional choice for their gender.
