State of Michigan CTE adopts WCA Skill Standards

We got an encouraging call from an instructor in Paw Paw, Michigan, yesterday. He will be growing his wood manufacturing program next year. He tells us the State of Michigan criteria for learning objectives and student progress are aligned with the Woodwork Career Alliance Wood Manufacturing Skill Standards. His school will subscribe as a WCA EDUcation™ member for the 2014-10215 school year and beyond. This is a great outcome from our pioneering work with Michigan Dept. of Education last year.

We All Win

23 Custom Assessments Created

In support of our INDustry™ members we continue to increase the scope of the Skill Standards and Assessments. We’ve added a number of sanders and shapers to the Standards. We’ve added tenoners and special boring and insertion machines.

This might be a good additional benefit of WCA EDUcation™ membership. Let’s work together to get our schools on the M-List and in the Right Skills Now program when the benefit is real and practical.
