What is CTE?
Students enrolled in state-approved secondary career and technical education (CTE) programs have an opportunity to acquire skills that prepare them for successful career entry, advancement, and/or continuing education.
Career and technical education, or CTE, is education that directly prepares students for high-wage, high-demand careers. CTE covers many different fields, including health care, information technology, advanced manufacturing, hospitality and management and many more. Each secondary state-approved program is required to integrate four key components:
- Classroom Instruction
- Laboratory Learning
- Work-based Learning
- Student Leadership
