What is Career and Technical Education and why is it important?
Career and Technical Education (CTE) is a planned program of courses and learning experiences that include exploration of career options; supports basic academic and life skills; and provides hands-on experiences for students.
Career and Technical Education (CTE) is an integral part of each student’s high school education. CTE helps each student develop their leadership, workplace, and technical skills while ensuring they are academically prepared for postsecondary education and training for a wide range of high-wage, high-skill, high-demand careers.
