CTE WORKING WITH BUSINESS & INDUSTRY
CTE partnerships have three important elements:
-They are in line with market data on high-growth, high-skill jobs;
-They meet a state’s current and future economic priorities; and
-They are connected to post-secondary credential programs.

CTE is a proven method to bolster the country’s continued economic success by meeting workforce needs and giving students the skills required to succeed professionally in high demand fields.

“In modern education we tend to focus on our main subjects – math, science, history, and English. You could have a 5.0 GPA, perfect SAT or ACT score, yet find it very difficult to find and maintain a job. In reality, what do any of those subjects mean if they are not applicable to modern jobs?” Robert Moore, VA DECA

Working closely with Business and Industry, CTE provides students with the ability to learn the soft skills needed to gain and maintain a job in the future. Students experience real-world examples, putting academic skills in context.
