Chapter Excellence Program

CEP Level 1 & 2 Deadline: January 11, 2023

CEP recognizes achievement as it relates to the integration of the SkillsUSA Framework in the chapter program of work activities. As a chapter’s yearly action plan, the program of work is at the heart of student learning and employability development. By using the Framework as a guide, chapters have a blueprint for creating relevant activities that encourage participation and foster an understanding of student learning attained during each activity. The Framework’s focus on intentional learning turns the program of work into more than just a planning tool. Using the Framework, the program of work becomes the vital conduit that links students to the application of personal, workplace and technical skills demanded by industry. The SkillsUSA Framework creates the SkillsUSA trifecta for student success!

1-on-1 CEP Coaching

SkillsUSA is excited to offer the opportunity to schedule a one-on-one coaching session with our CEP and PoW Coach, Kelli Engelbrecht. Learn how to integrate the SkillsUSA Framework, articulate your SMART goals and select and evaluate your Essential Elements within your CEP application.

“The students absolutely LOVED the session with the coach. The coach explained things so much better. They feel like they have a better understanding of the expectations of the CEP application. It was entirely new to us last year. We have never done anything like this before.”
