With over 50,000 registered educators, CTE Online is the California resource devoted to connecting educators and leaders within the unique field of Career and Technical Education to quality curriculum models, shared communities of practice, and professional development tools that emphasize the role rigorous academic skills play in supporting students' pursuit of industry- and career-related coursework.

Local instructional leaders will find all of the tools necessary to help their faculty members identify and align rich career and technical curricula with the promotion of academic skills commonly measured on state assessments facing our students, schools, and districts each year.
It is the belief of this program that CTE personnel and departments can and do serve a vital role in reinforcing academic skills in a contextualized, applied instructional setting that is difficult to replicate in traditional core academic settings. CTE programs should be embraced and utilized as an integral piece in supporting campus and district wide academic achievement efforts.
CTE educators and leaders throughout the state are finding new opportunities to join in a common process of curriculum-related work that helps publicize the methods by which academic skills are integrated into all CTE programs on a daily basis.
This site serves as a critical device by which skilled educators within this dynamic field can share the work they are doing to support the balanced development of our youth that supports both their current academic challenges and future career interests equally.
To do this, CTE Online offers FREE Training to support strong Career and Technical Education programs throughout California.
