CTE Programs of Study Application Resources


An Oregon Career and Technical Education Program of Study (CTE POS) is a sequence of courses, aligned to industry standards at the secondary and postsecondary level, that integrates technical and career skill proficiencies with academic content. A CTE POS prepares students for the workplace, further education, training, and community roles. Please use the documents and resources below to research, develop, and submit an application for a CTE Program of Study. State approved Programs of Study are eligible to use federal Carl D. Perkins funds to help improve student performance.

General Resources

Program of Study renewals for the 2021-2022 school year are only required for the following four career clusters: Construction; Manufacturing; Information & Communications Technology; Buisness Management & Administration. All other career clusters will renew on schedule with Statewide Programs of Study renewal cycle. If you have any questions, please contact your CTE Regional Coordinator.

CTE Programs of Study

New application guidance will be released Spring of 2022 as the CTE program development and approval process is currently undergoing redesign to meet the new Perkins V requirements and updated CTE Information System.

CTE Approved Program Lists

Programs of Study consist of a secondary CTE state approved Program of Study and a postsecondary CTE state approved program leading to a postsecondary certificate of completion, a degree, or an industry recognized credential. During the secondary POS application process, a connection and pathway are identified to the postsecondary CTE program.
