Career and Technical Education
What is CTE? Career & Technical Education is offered at our schools through course pathways that prepare students to be college and career ready by providing core academic skills, industry-standard credentials, and technical job-specific capabilities. CTE students experience real-world and hands-on activities helping them to gain specific skills for their future. They have the opportunity to use the equipment, software, and tools that are currently utilized in our local workforce. CTE pathways offered in Sarasota County Schools are aligned to our current region’s occupational demands. Our schools have established partnerships with local employers and postsecondary institutions enabling clear roadmaps to certifications, degrees, and sustainable careers.
