Laura Barrett: Career Technical Education Month: Empowering the workforce of the future

By Laura Barrett an published by

February is Career Technical Education (CTE) Month, a time to celebrate and raise awareness about the important role that CTE plays in preparing individuals for successful careers. This year’s theme, “Celebrate Today, Own Tomorrow,” highlights the value of CTE in helping individuals develop the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in a rapidly changing job market. Educational Service Unit 13 (ESU 13) is proud to support our schools as they partner with the community and stakeholders to develop their CTE system driven by future economic and workforce demands.

CTE programs offer hands-on, real-world experiences that help students explore different career paths, develop industry-specific skills, and prepare for entry-level jobs. These programs offer a more practical and relevant approach to education, as they provide students with the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in the workforce. These programs range from health care and information technology to construction and manufacturing, and they provide students with the opportunity to learn about their chosen career field, develop technical skills, and make connections with professionals in the industry.
