What is Career and Technical Education?

Career and Technical Education, or CTE, provides students a structure to learn the skills, knowledge, and training necessary to succeed in both academic and technical situations. Bristol CTE helps to prepare our students for their pathway to college, career, and the Bristol community by introducing rigorous academic and technical content through an aligned, hands-on context. 

In short, Bristol’s rigorous, relevant, and innovative career and technical education is helping to prepare our students for a wide range of high-wage, high skill, and high-demand careers. These students are our future workforce and Bristol CTE is working to ensure our students will successfully lead our Bristol community.

Please see the Bristol CTE Booklet and Our CTE Programs for more detailed information on how Bristol CTE prepares our students for their pathway to college, careers, and the Bristol community.
