What is career and technical education?

New Hampshire Career and Technical Education (CTE) is hands-on, real-world learning that applies directly to a job or career.  CTE is offered at the high school level statewide and leads to well-paying jobs and fulfilling careers.  Students explore their interests such as health care, automotive technology or finance while earning college credits and industry certifications, before entering college.
