February 1, 2020 - February 29, 2020
Each February is CTE Month, a public awareness campaign that supports career and technical education and CTE programs across the United States.
Originally created by the Association for Career and Technical Education, CTE Month is an opportunity for everyone to celebrate career-focused education. As construction is one of the great career paths available through CTE, February is an exciting month for the industry.
CTE Month is a perfect time for programs and companies alike to promote the importance of craft education. Teachers and students can showcase the success and aspirations of their training programs, and it’s an opportunity for industry leaders to build connections and partnerships with schools and educators. It’s also a good time to engage with groups like policymakers, parents and the media to grow awareness and support for CTE. For example, Advance CTE launched their Double the Investment Campaign in February 2019.
Don’t forget to get social! Share photos, stories, statistics and other information in support of career and technical education by using the hashtag #CTEMonth on social media.
