NSA Day of Cyber
February is CTE Month and a great opportunity to connect your students with the opportunities in Information Technology and Cybersecurity by running the NSA Day of Cyber experience as an activity that connects students to those in-demand jobs in IT and cyber.
Career and technical education, or CTE, is education that directly prepares students for high-wage, high-demand careers. CTE covers many different fields, including health care, information technology, advanced manufacturing, hospitality and management and many more.
If you do plan to have your students run the NSA Day of Cyber in February, feel free to email Kim Paradise, NSA Day of Cyber Executive Director, about your experience!
Happy CTE Month!
