February is Career and Technical and Education (CTE) Month.

Kansas CTE prepares students for a wide range of work, training and educational opportunities including:

  • Developing real-world employability skills.
  • Connecting students to workforce applications.
  • Promoting postsecondary degrees and certifications.
  • Introducing students to industry partners.

Kansas has 16 Career Clusters for students to choose from and 36 Career Cluster Pathways.

A Career Cluster is a group of occupations similar in skill set and training. Career Cluster Pathways are focused and specific areas of study leading to a particular industry or business area. These occupations fall within seven career fields in Kansas — agriculture; business; family and consumer sciences; public services; media and technology; health; and design, production and repair.
