This is a last call to help complete the 2018 Technological Education Survey before you leave for summer!
Thank you to all of you who participated in last year’s Technological Education Teacher survey! We have used the results of the survey to move a number of new OCTE initiatives forward and to develop an OCTE Multi-Year Plan 2018 – 2021.

We have once again partnered with the Ministry of Education to continue this research, inform our new and ongoing OCTE initiatives and to create a baseline of data to measure improvements. We are asking for your help and your voice once again to complete this year’s Technological Education survey, which should take about 10 minutes to complete.
