Career and Technical Education Month

The Association for Career & Technical Education (ACTE) our National organization, declares the entire month of February 2020 dedicated to celebrating CTE.

CTE gives students an early opportunity to explore career possibilities and a head start on preparation for careers in high skill, high wage, and high demand occupations. Many of the fastest growing occupations today, and within the next decade, will require the academic and technical knowledge and skills that students gain from completing CTE Programs of Study.

Twitter Tuesdays and Facebook Fridays during CTE® Month
Every Tuesday, throughout the month of February, share information on Twitter about your CTE program and student success. Every Friday, post a story of your CTE program or student success on your Facebook page.

Be sure to include the hashtag #CTEPBC
