There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

National Center for Innovation and Career and Technical Education Launches Website; OVAE Seeks Comments on Perkins State Plan Guide
Apr 25, 2013
The Department of Education’s Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE) reports that the National Center for Innovation and Career and Technical Education (NCICTE), funded in 2012 and authorized under the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins IV), has launched its website at http://ctecenter.ed.gov. The site features proposed research by the center, related research in the CTE resource section, and online training modules that provide guidance for translating the Center’s studies into application at colleges, districts, or schools.

Among the many offered resources, the site provides "Building a System of High Quality Career Pathways: High School Transformation and District Supports."

The Department of Education today announced it is soliciting comments on the proposed extension of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006 State Plan Guide.

This State Plan Guide requires eligible State agencies to submit a 6-year plan, with annual revisions as the eligible agency deems necessary in order to receive Federal funds. The Office of Vocational and Adult Education/Division of Academic and Technical Education program staff review the submitted state plans for compliance and quality.
