Teachers preparing students for the workforce

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - About 300 career and technical education teachers from across the state are attending training courses in Lafayette this week as part of the state's push to prepare high school students to take full advantage of Louisiana's growing jobs market.

The five-day Jump Start 2014 Super Summer Institute is a training session that qualifies instructors to train students, who in turn will be eligible for career credentials and will receive dual credit - high school and college credit - for the training.

Lisa French, Louisiana Department of Education's executive director of career and technical education, tells The Advocate the state's last technical education summer training institute was held in 2010, and it was reinstated this summer because of the Jump Start initiative.
