Career and Technical Education (CTE)


CTE Learning that works for Oregon

Overview/Career and Technical Education

Career and Technical Education (CTE) is content, programs, and instructional strategies for students based on individual interest as well as business and industry needs. CTE prepares and supports students in acquiring the technical skills, professional practices, and academic knowledge critical for career success in high-wage, in-demand areas.

CTE comprises programs offered in six career areas: Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources Systems; Arts, Information, and Communications; Business and Management; Health Sciences; Human Resources; and Industrial and Engineering Systems.
