NT 1.1 Welcome

Topic Progress:


Welcome to the online module, Nontraditional Student Success – Perkins Basics and Beyond. Congratulations for making a conscious effort to work towards making access and equity a priority in your Career Technical Education (CTE) programs. We are happy to be a part of those efforts!

This module will help you work towards improving your Perkins Core Indicators, especially as they pertain to participation and completion of students who are nontraditional by gender. If you don’t know much about the Perkins Core Indicators, don’t worry, because we’ll start with some background information. The module will then assist you in identifying root causes that are affecting the success of your CTE classroom, program, department, and/or school, especially programs focused on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).  You will receive a plethora of research-based strategies and resources to address the root causes.

Upon completion of the module, you will be able to print a certificate of completion that you may be able to use with your institution’s human resources office for evidence of continuing education. It is required that you complete the entire module to receive the certificate.
