Course Description

CEU Course Description

Career and Technical Education, or CTE, is the subject of an emerging trend in American education. Long equated with similarly practical programs such as vocational school, CTE now represents a targeted approach that--for some students--might help forge a path towards careers that would usually require a Bachelor’s degree. Studies are also beginning to reveal that the focused nature of high-quality CTE programs also provide innate benefits to the student, enhancing their educational experience and likelihood of success. Their cost efficacy makes these types of programs an excellent consideration for schools to invest in over the coming years. In this course, we’ll discuss the elements that make CTE programs truly great; the career clusters that are available to CTE students; and specific methods for incorporating a robust CTE program at your school.

CEU Course Objectives

  1. Ascertain the specific mission of CTE programs, the needs they meet, and how CTE programs are evolving to provide industry- and market-specific benefits 
  2. Review the benefits that CTE programs offer to students, teachers, and communities
  3. Brainstorm ways to make CTE education more accessible for students in middle and high school
  4. Understand the factors and elements of a high-quality CTE program
  5. Discuss specific methods for providing students with a robust CTE experience, whether the program is taught in-person or remotely
  6. Provide an overview of the 16 career clusters in CTE education, as well as how it is generally taught and where a student might be able to find these programs
