Adding a 17th Career Cluster in Your State

With the importance of energy in today's world, the movement of instituting an Energy Career Cluster at the state level is spreading. CEWD will continue its efforts to add the cluster nationally, but we believe this can best be achieved through a grassroots undertaking. (If you're not familiar with career clusters and the role they play in education and workforce development, check out the Career Clusters Toolkit.)

The first state to add an energy career cluster is Florida. See the CTE curriculum frameworks they've created for the program: http://www.fldoe.org/workforce/dwdframe/energy_cluster_frame12.asp

State energy workforce consortia can use this new toolkit, which includes a presentation (with a script in the notes section) and other materials, to make the case for adding a 17th career cluster.
