Career and Technical Education

 


Nearly 90 percent of the fastest growing jobs in the U.S. require some form of education beyond high school. Almost 80 percent of all jobs in the foreseeable future will require some type of certification, credential, post-secondary degree or long-term training, though only 40 percent of these jobs require a four-year college degree. That means that every student needs to plan and prepare for education after high school, how to pay for that education, and how to thrive in and graduate from high school itself. (Figures provided by the Institute for a Competitive Workforce's The Skills Imperative.)

Career and Technical Education supports and guides all students, whether you need or want to go straight to work following graduation, or you already know that you are headed for a two- or four-year college. Educators, guidance counselors and parents can use CTE to help all young people plan ahead. CTE is a way to help all students plan ahead, for two- or four-year college degrees, for industry certifications or for registered apprenticeship options, “the original four-year degree.” (http://www.k12.wa.us/CareerTechEd/WhyCTE.aspx)
