Career and Technical Education (CTE) can help students prepare for a broad range of careers. These courses provide a meaningful framework of practical instruction that helps bridge the gap between education and an authentic career experience.
In MIssissippi, all CTE curricula are research-based and meet industry-specific standards in technology, workplace skills, and academics. In response to ever-changing business and industry needs, we evaluate and update our programs frequently. These programs are part of an integrated educational delivery system that accommodates every secondary and postsecondary school district.
CTE programs, whether in secondary, postsecondary, short-term adult, industry training, or business and industry partnership settings, enable students to acquire needed skills and abilities to achieve their occupational goals. Upon successful completion of CTE program area courses, students will possess marketable job skills and national industry certifications.
