 cte_logoeaglelogo


Alabama's Career and Technical Education curriculum empowers students with the work-readiness skills necessary for success in the twenty-first century. Career-empowered students are productive citizens who are prepared with the knowledge and skills for post-secondary education or for employment. The career and technical education classroom provides an opportunity for all students to combine academics with other high-caliber learning experiences.

Alabama's Career and Technical Education program is designed to keep abreast of the rapid changes in business and industry by offering students a rigorous array of course work to help prepare them for advanced learning and a wide range of career opportunities. Rigor in the course of study is derived from two primary sources-academic and industry-specific workplace knowledge and skills. Rigor in the workplace is evidenced by the knowledge and skills required for students to achieve, maintain, and advance in employment in a particular pathway. The level of academic and workplace rigor is a function of the degree to which each career and technical education program prepares students for high-skill, high-wage, or high-demand careers. For select career opportunities, credentials and certifications have been established that validate the rigor of the curriculum to parents, students, and business and industry.

 Career and technical student organizations are integral, co-curricular components of each career and technical education course. These organizations serve as a means to enhance classroom instruction while helping students develop leadership abilities, expand workplace-readiness skills, and broaden opportunities for personal and professional growth.
