Career & Technical Education
What is Career & Technical Education (CTE)?
Career and technical education—or CTE—are programs designed to provide students with a combination of academic and technical skills, and hands-on training, to prepare them for future careers.
Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs in Washington are aligned with rigorous industry and academic standards. Teachers participate in meaningful professional development on curricula and instruction, standards and assessment, and academic integration.
Each year, thousands of CTE students graduate from high school with career goals, job skills and leadership skills knowing exactly where they will go next to further their academic and hands-on education and training. Find your passion and become one of those students!
