Career Technical Education (CTE)

Career Technical Education: Preparing students for higher education, the workforce, and life. 

The Temecula Valley Unified School District Celebrates Career and Technical Education Month, February 2016

Temecula, California – Students and faculty at TVUSD will join others across the nation during the month of February to celebrate national Career and Technical Education (CTE) MonthTM.  This year’s theme is Opportunities for Career Success! CTE Month provides CTE programs across the country an opportunity to demonstrate how CTE makes students college-and-career ready and prepares them for high-wage, high-demand career fields.   Click here to access the press release.

“The activities planned over the next month will illustrate the rigor and relevance CTE courses offer our students,” said Valerie Backus, Chaparral High School CTE teacher.  “As we begin better partnering with the business community, CTE programs are investing in students and providing them with the knowledge, skills, and experience that will prepare them to become successful in their future endeavors.” 


“At Great Oak High School, students will be exposed to weekly CTE alumni speakers all paired with “Get Job Ready” lessons throughout the month,” said Dawn Maceyka, GOHS CTE Department Chair.


CTE has evolved from focusing on skilled trades to encompassing ALL students.  Differences between the old Vocational Education model (For specific students • Limited program areas offered • Separate “track” with a focus on technical education • High school focused • Students trained with focus on specific occupational skill set) and the New CTE model (For all students • 16 Career Clusters and 79 pathways • Integrated with academics in a rigorous and relevant curriculum • High school and postsecondary partnerships providing pathways to employment and/or associate, bachelor’s and advanced degrees • Progression of foundational, pathway, occupational and 21st century skills) demonstrate CTE flexes to the national economic needs.  Kim Randall, CTE teacher from TVHS explains that, “Current CTE courses offer students a rigorous and relevant curriculum that will give them the skills and education necessary to enter 21st Century jobs and post-secondary education after high school."


TVUSD CTE programs prepare students for many of the industry sectors in our economy, including those requiring university and trade school preparation as well as entry level on the job training.  In keeping with the TVUSD mission of
High Quality Teaching and Learning for All,”
CTE prepares students for post-secondary education, the military, the workforce, and life as it teaches the standards for career ready practice.
