What is Career & Technical Education (CTE)?  


Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs prepare students to enter the workforce with the academic and career skills needed to compete successfully in the job market. CTE courses typically include competency-based learning. 

Our Vision

Ensure a dynamic workforce by fully developing every student’s career and academic potential. 

Our Mission

Prepare Arizona students for workforce success and continuous learning.

CTE is at the forefront of preparing students to be “college-ready and career-ready.” Career & Technical Education equips students with: 

  • core academic skills and the ability to apply those skills to concrete situations in order to function in the workplace and in routine daily activities
  • employability skills (such as critical thinking and responsibility) that are essential in any career area 
  • job-specific, technical skills related to a specific career pathway

Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs) are an integral part of CTE. CTSOs prepare young people to become productive citizens and leaders in their communities by providing unique programs of career and leadership development, motivation, and recognition for students enrolled, or previously enrolled, in CTE programs.
