1 Career and Technology Education (CTE) in Maryland

2 Key Themes in CTE: Expansion, Rigor and Access Expand CTE program offerings to ensure responsiveness to economic and workforce development needs and provide career opportunities for all Maryland students Ensure academic and technical Rigor of CTE programs that prepare Maryland high school graduates for successful transition to college and careers. Increase Access to CTE programs so that all of Maryland’s students have opportunities for career preparation and are provided support for successful transition from high school to college and careers.

3 Maryland CTE Today Restructuring Career & Technology Education for a Technologically Advanced Global Society Industry-driven design around Career Clusters Focus on Problem Solving & Critical Thinking in CTE Breadth, Depth, & Value Added in CTE Programs State Programs of Study 3

4 Maryland CTE Programs of Study CTE provides students a planned, sequential program of study including both technical and academic preparation CTE programs are designed to support students in making decisions about their academic and career plans Maryland CTE programs of study are statewide model programs designed to prepare high school students for the 21 st Century global economy – for both College and Careers 4

5 Ten Career Clusters 1.Arts, Media, & Communication 2.Business, Management & Finance 3.Construction & Development 4.Consumer Services, Hospitality, & Tourism 5.Environmental, Agricultural, & Natural Resources 6.Health & Biosciences 7.Human Resource Services 8.Information Technology 9.Manufacturing, Engineering & Technology 10.Transportation Technologies 5

7 Increased Demand for Employees in STEM Careers Employment demand in STEM occupations is increasing at every educational level – Qualified technicians are needed in Transportation, Advanced Manufacturing and technology-driven industries – Second only to Healthcare, STEM is the fastest-growing occupational category in the economy Growing demand for STEM competencies outside traditional STEM occupations requires a more broad- reaching strategy in the American K-16 education system 7 Source:Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce: STEM

8 STEM and CTE Education By 2018, 92% of traditional STEM jobs will be for those with some postsecondary education Close to two-thirds of STEM job openings will be for those with Bachelor’s degrees and above By 2018, about 35% of the STEM workforce will be comprised of those with sub-baccalaureate training, including:  1 million Associate Degrees  745,000 Certificates and  760,000 Industry-based certifications 8 Source:Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce: STEM

15 Student Understandings A CTE Program is a Sequence of Courses that Results in an Industry Certification and/or Early College Credit With Guidance, Students will be able to Identify CTE Programs Aligned with their Interests, Skills Knowledge, and Goals 15

16 Student Expectations Every Student has a Career and Academic Plan Prior to Grade 9 that is Updated Annually Students have Access and Opportunities to Take Higher Level Academic Courses (e.g. Honors and AP) in Conjunction with Their CTE Program of Study Students Can Complete a CTE Program AND Meet the University System of Maryland Admission Requirements A CTE Program is a Sequence of Courses that Results in an Industry Certification and/or Early College Credit With Guidance, Students will be able to Identify CTE Programs Aligned with their Interests, Skills Knowledge, and Goals 16
