[ARCHIVED] Vocational Education

Vocational Education

Governor Gretchen Whitmer proclaimed February 2021 as Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month in Michigan.  Career and technical education prepares students at the secondary and postsecondary levels to have the academic, technical, and work-behavior skills to enter, compete and advance in education and throughout their careers.   CTE offers a diverse delivery system that provides students with leadership opportunities in various career fields, allowing for the rigorous and relevant application of workplace skills while incorporating reading, writing and mathematics.  These programs serve as career and college-ready connections and are the foundation of a strong and well-educated workforce.

Career and technical education programs offer students opportunities to earn college credit, industry certification and licenses in high-wage, high-skill and in-demand fields.  CTE students gain work-based learning experiences to provide Michigan with a highly-skilled, sustainable workforce.

Learn more about career and technical education programs at the Michigan Department of Education, the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity, and the Michigan Association for Career and Technical Education.
