Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) is dedicated to preparing students for 21st century workplace careers by providing high-quality educational opportunities that support the economy with an educated workforce. CTAE integrates core academic knowledge with technical and occupational skills to prepare students for post-secondary education and the workforce. The state of Georgia has identified 17 career clusters that are structured to prepare students for Georgia’s labor force. CTAE pathways, based on these clusters, are available for students to complete based on a set of common knowledge, skills and abilities which prepares students for various opportunities. These opportunities include, but are not limited to, advanced curriculum, Move On When Ready (MOWR), Work-based Learning (WBL), career awareness, career development and employability skills.

  • use core academic and CTAE classes to prepare students for post-secondary options and/or the workplace after high school.
  • assist students in finding employment that aligns to their career choices.
