CTE Programs

Maryland's Career Technology Education (CTE) programs fall under ten career clusters, groupings of interrelated occupations that represent the full range of career opportunities in key economic sectors of Maryland’s economy.  

College and school administrators, counselors, and faculty members are using the career cluster system to develop programs that extend from high school to two-and four-year colleges/universities,  apprenticeship programs and the workplace.

The programs listed under each cluster are Maryland's model CTE program proposals.  Templates are available for local directors of CTE to use to obtain program approval.  Other helpful tools for directors are:

Arts, Media, and Communication

Business Management and Finance

Construction and Development

Consumer Services, Hospitality and Tourism

Career Research and Development

Environmental, Agriculture & Natural Resources

Health and Biosciences

Human Resource Services

Information Technology
