Career and Technical Education (CTE)
According to the CTE Factsheet available on the Association for Career and Technical Education's website, "Career and technical education (CTE) prepares both youth and adults for a wide range of careers and further educational opportunities. These careers may require varying levels of education—including industry-recognized credentials, postsecondary certificates, and two- and four-year degrees."
Today’s CTE provides students:
- Academic subject matter taught with relevance to the real world
- Employability skills, from job-related skills to workplace ethics
- Career pathways that link secondary and postsecondary education
- Second-chance education and training
- Education for additional training and degrees, especially related to workplace training, skills upgrades and career advancement
