Real-world skills. Real-world experience. Right in your hands.
Why do students love CTE? What do they like about their classes? There are many things - more independence and self-directed learning, more personalized instruction and the chance to combine school with something that really interests you. But usually at the top of the list is hands-on learning. You get to use your hands in conjunction with your brain. While CTE classes definitely incorporate traditional book learning and lectures, students spend a significant amount of time in the labs applying what they’re learning in a real-world setting.
That’s why students love CTE. That’s why you might, too.
