Welcome to the Association for Career and Technical Education of Nebraska (ACTEN). The ACTEN board thanks you for visiting and being a part of this association. Since 1946, ACTEN continues to be the professional organization for career and technical education in Nebraska. This association continues to support and advocate for teachers, administrators, teacher educators, career counselors, teacher candidates, business partners, and other professionals.

As a member of this organization, you are an integral part of keeping career and technical education up to date and hands-on for our students. Commitment to being a professional in ACTEN is how this process continues. Nebraska Career and Technical Education have been a large part of many high schools and we need to continue to help prepare students in these programs to meet the job demands for the future.

The mission of ACTEN is to educate, advocate, and lead with a unified voice for Nebraska Career and Technical Education. By working together we will grow professionally as CTE leaders and educators.
