Career & Technical Education

 

Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs prepare individuals for a wide range of careers that reflect the contemporary workplace.  They incorporate rigorous academic and technical standards that equip students with skills necessary for successful transition to postsecondary education or work while promoting life-long learning in a global society. CTE programs support skills such as communication, critical thinking, problem solving, entrepreneurship and leadership through Career and Technical Student Organizations and incorporate service, leadership, and competitive activities that enhance students’ classroom experiences. Direct ties to community, education, and the workforce are essential to every CTE program and allow learning to take place in multiple settings that result in students earning a local, state, or industry credential. Work-based learning programs enhance business/education partnerships, provide students with opportunities to reinforce skills learned in the classroom in a work-setting, and teach employability skills and work behaviors to be effective in the workforce.  Through this comprehensive approach to learning, students in CTE build a rich portfolio of knowledge and skills to achieve their personal, educational, and career goals.
