Career and Technical Education

Michigan's Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs provide students the necessary academic, technical and work skills to help them succeed in college and careers.

State-approved programs are grouped into 17 career clusters, that provide rigorous content aligned with challenging academic standards, as well as related relevant technical knowledge and skills. The blend of work-based learning experiences through partnerships with business and industry, and the development of soft skills through student leadership opportunities, provides a seamless transition into higher education and the world of work. The entire program supports the pillars of the Michigan Department of Education's Top 10 in 10 initiatives.

CTEIS ReportsThe Career and Technical Education Information System is a web-based application that collects information for state-approved CTE programs in Michigan. Some of these data are aggregated and displayed on CTEIS Reports.

Enrollment reports are broken out by how far students have progressed in their program: participants (completed less than half), concentrators (completed more than half), and completers. Reports are available by demographic subgroups and grade or specifically by race/gender and grade.

Performance evaluation reports assess the quality of CTE programs based on measures such as student academic and technical performance, graduation from high school, placement in postsecondary education, and preparation for the workforce. Reports are available by all CTE students and by special populations.

Follow-up survey reports summarize placement, continued education, and employment of CTE completers. Reports are available by summary and detailed information.
