​What is Career & Technical Education?

Career and Technical Education (CTE) prepares students for high-wage, skill-specific careers that are in demand by providing core academics, employability coaching, and technical training.

CTE is at the forefront of preparing students to succeed in fast-growing, high-growth industries around the country. According to reports, the labor market is increasingly demanding a more skilled workforce and by 2020, 65% of all job openings in the U.S. will require some postsecondary education or training - though not necessarily a four year degree.
