Career Equity Resource Center (CERC)

The Career Equity Resource Center (CERC) provides data-informed research based professional development and technical assistance to secondary schools and county colleges operating or planning to operate career and technical education (CTE) programs.

The aim of CERC is to assist schools in building their own internal capacity to broaden access and opportunity to prepare special populations to high-skill, high-wage, or in-demand CTE careers.

The delivery of CERC services is a voluntary process that schools may wish to undertake to proactively address pecific equity issues or to develop comprehensive equity plans. All CERC workshops align with the goals of the Perkins V required Comprehensive Local Needs Assessment (CLNA).
