Career and Technical Education (CTE)

Last Updated 11/20/2023

Career and Technical Education, often abbreviated as CTE, refers to skills-based teaching at the middle school, high school, and postsecondary levels. CTE programs provide hands-on and realistic experience, where students learn technical and employable skills required for specific jobs or fields of work. CTE programs are typically developed with input from industry partners to be responsive to workforce needs

CTE is also referred to as work-based learning (WBL).
