Career & Technical Education (CTE)

Division Mission

With One Common Culture, One Common Vision and One Common Approach, the Division of Career & Technical Education shall be responsive, relevant and innovative in the promotion of the nationally recognized 16 Career Clusters and the state’s corresponding Programs of Study across Tennessee.

In doing so, our efforts will be actionable, measurable and ambitious and will complement the department’s overarching core values and the larger belief that all students can achieve academically and be prepared appropriately for success at the postsecondary level and in their chosen careers.
