Career and Technical Education

What is the report?

This report shows an unduplicated count of students enrolled in state-approved Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs aggregated at the Career Cluster level.

What is Career and Technical Education (CTE)?

CTE programs offer students a sequence of courses that provide rigorous content aligned with challenging academic standards as well as relevant technical knowledge and skills needed to prepare students for both further education and careers in current or emerging professions. These programs often include an industry-recognized credential, a certificate, or articulated college credit.

Information concerning Career Clusters and the individual Programs (CIP Codes) included in each of the 16 Clusters can be found at http://www.careertech.org.

The CTE Navigator site provides access to Michigan’s state approved CTE program standards which are used for education decision making, management, and ultimately student achievement. See http://ctenavigator.org .
