Career and Technical Education (CTE) and career pathway programs are educational programs that provide learners with the knowledge and skills they need to be prepared for college and careers. These programs include opportunities for students to earn recognized certificates that prove the skills they learned (also called industry-valued credentials), earn college credit while in high school (dual enrollment programs), and participate in work-based learning experiences (e. g. internships, job shadowing). CTE gives purpose to learning by emphasizing real-world skills and practical knowledge within a selected career pathway.
