Hosted by the Congressional Career and Technical Education Caucus
Friday, February 8th at 11am
Career and technical education (CTE) programs prepare students of all ages for college and career success by providing core academic, technical, and job-specific skills through classroom and work-based learning. Partnerships between industry
and education ensure students have the knowledge and expertise needed for lifelong careers in high-wage, high-skill and in-demand fields, including IT, manufacturing, healthcare, and the skilled trades.
Help kick off National Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month by joining us for a briefing on the foundations of CTE and how it benefits students and businesses throughout the country. Learn from a panel of experts about the CTE model,
relevant federal law, and opportunities for your Member to support CTE in the 116th Congress.
