The Ohio State University, Center on Education and Training for Employment
(CETE)

UNEVOC Centre (Training provider) since 2006

The Center on Education and Training for Employment (CETE) is a translational research center within The Ohio State University’s College of Education and Human Ecology located in Columbus, Ohio, USA. Our center seeks to solve societal problems through the use of an evidence-based intervention to policy development that results in widespread use of proven practices.

CETE bridges research and practice through work in assessment, community engagement and evaluation, corrections education, curriculum and training, professional learning for educators and family engagement. Our work has influenced areas such as human trafficking; school, family, and community partnerships; and adult education. The widespread application of our work has impacted the lives of families, children, and youth; immigrants; special needs populations; and various professional groups (e.g., students, teachers, managers, and technicians).

CETE empowers a team of faculty fellows and affiliates within The Ohio State University to engage in resource development, research, scholarship, and instruction in support translating research into practices toward the advancement of the workforce and health of communities. Our associates have extensive expertise in standards, curriculum and instruction, assessment, evaluation, professional development, international initiatives, and online education.


Mission

We are committed to translating research into practices resulting in a prepared and effective global workforce and healthy communities that support well-being and economic prosperity. Our associates conduct scholarship; support faculty, staff, and students engaged in research and development efforts; and create learning experiences within the context of international education, workforce, and community development.


Objectives

1) Serve as an international translational research center seeking to solve societal problems

2) Implement widespread use of evidence-based practices through the development of policies



Regular tasks

CETE supports the discovery of new knowledge and its translation into the fields of education, workforce development, and community engagement. We collaborate with our international network of clients and sponsors, partners, and subject matter experts to facilitate in person and online learning experiences and engage in translational research with the goal of policy development resulting in widespread use of proven practices. We disseminate our scholarly work through per-reviewed and non peer-reviewed publications, expertise briefs, presentations at conferences, and professional organizations.
