February is CTE Month
Career and Technical Education Month®, or CTE Month®, is a public awareness campaign that takes place each February highlighting the benefits of career and technical education. The goal is to inform the students and the community about what CTE is and how it directly prepares students for high-wage, high-demand careers. CTE impacts a wide variety of fields including health care, information technology, advanced manufacturing, management and many more.
