CTE courses typically include competency-based learning. Students achieve academic excellence through authentic, hands-on, career focused learning. They graduate with the skills necessary for successful entry into post-secondary, career, and life opportunities. CTE programs are the backbone of a strong, well-educated workforce, which fosters productivity in business and industry and contributes to America’s leadership in the international marketplace.
