Career & Technical Education
The main purpose of Career and Technical Education is to equip
students for both academic success and career success in today’s
workforce. CTE programs provide students with technical skills,
integrated academics and employability skills & attitudes necessary for success. These skills may help students work their way through college or other post secondary school or may prepare them for immediate career choices. Although academic courses are commonly associated with preparation for college and technical training as leading to immediate employment, in reality, many students need both to achieve their goals in life. In today’s globally competitive workplace, many individual employers require employability and technical skills. There are sixteen (16) CTE program areas or “Career Clusters”.
