Thank you for visiting the Education & Business Summit 2018 web page! The Education and Business Summit (EBS) is the premier Career and Technology Education (CATE) state conference hosted by the Office of Career and Technology Education at the South Carolina Department of Education. EBS is designed to provide learning opportunities in Career & Technology Education content, develop best practices for use in the classroom or in administrative roles, create strategies to prepare South Carolina students for college and career readiness, and prepare participants to develop stronger CATE courses and programs for the success of all students.

Through this unique professional development conference, educational leaders will be empowered to mold students into citizens that align to the Profile of the South Carolina graduate, which includes World Class Knowledge, World Class Skills, and Life and Career Characteristics. Collaboration between business/industry, career guidance, CATE teachers, administrators, post-secondary, and parents, will equip students with the skills needed to seamlessly transition from secondary to post-secondary education, the military, or career.
