CTE Clearinghouse: Programs of Study, Career Pathways and Career Clusters
CTE programs that receive Perkin’s funding are required to offer at least one program of study that includes coherent and rigorous content aligned with challenging academic standards and relevant career and technical content. The content must be delivered in a coordinated, non-duplicative progression of courses that align secondary education with postsecondary education and lead to an industry-recognized credential or certificate at the postsecondary level or an associate or baccalaureate degree. The following resources include best practice articles, research reports, podcasts, Webinars, and presentations that address strategies CTE programs have used to successfully implement programs of study.
