The mission of Career Technical Education (CTE) is to provide industry-linked programs and services that enable all individuals to: achieve their career goals, become economically self-sufficient, compete in the global marketplace, and contribute to the state's economic prosperity. CTE in California is provided through a variety of models and educational structures. These include courses and pathways offered through secondary schools and county offices of education, as well as various integrated and academic programs, including career academies offered through California Partnership Academies, Specialized Secondary Programs and Regional Occupation Centers.

CCSA has created a Knowledge Brief on Career Technical Education that addresses how to fund a CTE program and provide CTE courses and includes links to free curriculum, a teacher exchange forum and course standards.
