"CTE opens students’ minds and hearts to new experiences."

Kate Blosveren Kreamer — Deputy Executive Director, Advance CTE

Advance CTE often describes Career Technical Education (CTE) as an educational option that provides learners with the knowledge and skills they need to be prepared for college and careers. We believe that CTE gives purpose to learning by emphasizing real-world skills and practical knowledge within a selected career focus. And, CTE opens students’ minds and hearts to new experiences by exposing them to a variety of careers, starting in middle school, if not earlier.

But, for CTE to reach its full promise, we must stay focused on ensuring each student has access to and the opportunities to succeed in high-quality, well-designed CTE programs of study that cover a depth of technical, academic and 21st century skills.

While students may benefit from taking a CTE course or two, as this white paper demonstrates, the true impact can be found when students complete a rigorous, intentional sequence of courses that are aligned across high school and postsecondary, validated by industry, and anchored in a credential of value. It is through these experiences and pathways that students can truly be prepared for careers, college and in the 21st century.
