What is CTE?
Quality Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs provide students with the chance to prepare for high-skill, high-wage jobs in high-demand industries. CTE programs equip students with the skills they need to succeed in a technology-based economy.
What We Do
Our office works to coordinate and support CTE through:
- Policy and advocacy
- Public engagement and awareness
- Teacher recruitment and preparation
- Job placement & work-based experiences
- Regional coordination
In partnership with the Commerce Department's Talent Collaborative, we're developing a plan that will align job opportunities and skills with the CTE curricula taught in the School District of Philadelphia and Community College of Philadelphia.
