Weâre halfway through the 2018 Career and Technical Education MonthÂ®, a public awareness campaign that takes place eachÂ February to celebrate the value of Career and Technical Education and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs across the country.
From the Association of Career and Technical Education’s website:
“Career and technical education, or CTE, is education that directly prepares students for high-wage, high-demand careers. CTE covers many different fields, including health care, information technology, advanced manufacturing, hospitality and management and many more, as described in the nationalÂ Career ClustersÂ®Â and ACTE’sÂ What is CTE?Â page andÂ Sector Sheets. CTE encompasses many different types of education, from classroom learning to certification programs to work-based learning opportunities outside the classroom.”
