Career and Technical Education

Learning that works for Wyoming: CTE (logo)

Career and Technical Education (CTE) refers to educational programs in schools and colleges that specialize in the skilled trades, applied sciences, modern technologies and career preparation.  These programs allow students to apply what they are learning in their academic core classes in a meaningful way, and provide them with enriching work-based learning opportunities such as internships, job shadows, school-based enterprises, and industry certifications.  Wyoming public schools and community colleges offer a wide range of CTE opportunities for our students – everything from Business Finance to Wind Technology, Hospitality Management to Advanced Manufacturing, and everything in between.
