"Career and Technical Education" (CTE) is an educational program for middle school and high school students. At the high school level, CTE students can take a sequence of courses directly related to their preparation for further education and training within a career pathway. CTE programs include competency-based, hands-on learning that contributes to an individual's application of academic knowledge, higher-order reasoning and problem-solving skills, employability and work-related skills, and occupationally specific skills necessary for economic independence as a productive and contributing member of society. Through CTE programs, students receive training for employment in a high-skill, high wage job. CTE students are encouraged to pursue post secondary education/ training with focus in their chosen career pathway.
