What is CTE?
Career Technical Education (CTE) provides students of all ages with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training necessary to succeed in future careers and to become lifelong learners. CTE prepares these learners for the world of work by introducing them to workplace competencies, and makes academic content accessible to students by providing it in a hands-on context.
In today’s world CTE is important so that our children can understand responsibility; learn what is required to get and keep a job; receive information about and gain experience in careers of interest; and make informed choices for postsecondary education and life.
