CTE Month Resources

CTE Month Logo

February is Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month in Wisconsin and across the nation!!

It is a time to promote innovative CTE and reflect on the value of career and technical education for our students, the future workforce, and our economy. It is a time to inform students, parents, school personnel and counselors, community members, and legislators about CTE programs, student success, and the impact on future employment.

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and the Wisconsin Technical College System are using February's observance of Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month in Wisconsin to highlight the wide range of exciting opportunities available to youth in the state who wish to explore their career options and the benefit of those programs to Wisconsin industry and communities.
