CTE Student Leadership
All state-approved CTE programs are required to provide student leadership as an integral component of their program. Because leadership is an integral part of a CTE instructional program and embedded throughout all experiences, students should have the opportunity to engage in multiple activities to demonstrate self-improvement over time.
The CTE Teacher Tool Kit provides clear guidance to support this work.
Career Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs)
A Career Technical Student Organization (CTSO) is a student leadership organization that provides an excellent framework for developing leadership skills. Students will understand leadership and communication for personal development, communications and speaking to groups, development of managerial skills, leading individuals and groups, and career success to gain leadership positions both in their community and career.
