February is Career and Technical Education Month in Pennsylvania
Career and technical education plays an important role in preparing students for jobs after graduation or furthering their post-secondary education. Each February, we recognize the work of students pursuing career ambitions through CTE pathways and thank the educators whose work helps students find their passion and reach their full potential. Career and Technical Education equips students with the knowledge and the technical skills they need to find productive careers and after graduation.
Research consistently has shown that when students are engaged in school, through coursework, relationships, and extra-curricular activities, they are more likely to stay in school. Measures that provide schools, educators, and communities the dedicated, targeted resources needed to provide cutting edge career and technical education programs, instruction, and apprenticeships will ensure the greatest number of students achieve successful certification, gainful employment, and boundless options.
