About Career & Technical Education

Career & Technical Education is a program to provide students the opportunity to prepare for further learning about a career at a college or university or to go directly enter into the workforce. 

Career & Technical Education (CTE) has grown from the "Vocation Education" of the "Baby Boomer generation" to a comprehensive, academically driven, career preparation resource that has its eyes upon the global economy of the mid 21st century.

The North Carolina Career & Technical Education mission is to empower all students to be successful citizens, workers and leaders in a global economy.
