About CTE

The National Career Clusters™ Framework, developed by the National Career Technical Education Foundation, groups 79 career pathways into 16 clusters, providing context for academic learning and linking it to skills required for success in the workplace. This structure provides a guide for students and educators to ensure the comprehensiveness of courses of study and serves as a foundation for bridging secondary and post-secondary educational programs and training.
