What is Career & Technical Education?

Career & Technical Education (CTE) provides rigorous instruction to prepare students for high-wage, high-skill, high-demand careers and/or postsecondary opportunities. CTE bridges secondary and postsecondary curriculum, provides industry certification opportunities, reinforces core academics, and delivers the skills necessary for cutting-edge, economically viable career options. Work-based learning opportunities, hands-on learning, school-based enterprises, and Career & Technical Student Organizations are key components of CTE.
