• CTE: Learning that Works for America

    CTE Is developing America's most valuable resource--its people; helping them to gain the skills, technical knowledge, academic foundation and real-world experience they need to prepare for high-skill, high-demand, high-wage careers--and keep America working--in every sense of the word.
