Maryland CTE programs of study are statewide programs designed to prepare students for the global economy and workforce needs. All CTE programs are aligned to nationally or state-recognized industry and academic standards. CTE programs are organized by career clusters, which are groupings of occupations and industries based on shared features or “core functions,” CTE programs are based on academic and technical skill standards to ensure student preparation for both college and careers. CTE programs include work-based learning opportunities (e.g., internships, apprenticeships, clinical experience or industry mentored projects). Students also have the option to earn college credit and/or industry-recognized credentials such as certifications and licenses.
