TELL YOUR DECA STORY DURING CTE MONTH

WHAT IS CTE? CTE stands for Career and Technical Education. CTE is specifically directed toward students that are pursuing high-wage, high-demand careers. CTE involves education from the classroom, certification learning and work-based learning outside of the classroom.

HOW IS CTE RELATED TO DECA? DECA’s primary goal is explicitly shown in our mission statement: “prepares emerging leaders…” This is exactly what CTE is all about! CTE is about preparing students for life after school; readying them for that dream job and equipping them with the skills to be the most qualified person for the position. CTE isn’t limited to just DECA, but the connection is direct and very important.

WHAT AND WHEN IS CTE MONTH? CTE Month® is a public awareness campaign that takes place each February to celebrate the value of CTE and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs across the country.
