Over 40,000 seventh graders currently participate in CTE Intro as part of their middle/junior high school experience.

OverviewCTE Introduction Logo
The CTE Intro course is to be taught by a team of teachers with appropriate license and endorsements. Three Career and Technical Education (CTE) classroom teachers, with appropriate license and endorsements, should be assigned to team teach this year-long (180 days) course.CTE Introduction also requires support and classroom interaction with a school counselor and, where available, a Work-Based Learning coordinator.

Note: Because CTE Intro is a core curriculum requirement, a teacher must have an Elementary Education, Middle School or Secondary Education License with the appropriate endorsement.  A CTE License will not meet this requirement.   

GENERAL CTE ENDORSEMENTS: GRADES 7-12
The following CTE endorsements qualify Secondary Education License teachers to be on the CTE Introduction teacher team:

  • Agriculture (CTE/General)
  • Business (CTE/General)
  • Family and Consumer Sciences Education (CTE/General)
  • Intro to Health Science Science/Health Technology or Medical Anatomy & Physiology
  • Marketing (CTE/General)
  • Technology and Engineering Education (CTE /General)

A teacher is then qualified to teach the corresponding CTE content component.   It is recommended that collectively the CTE Introduction team teachers have at least three of these endorsements.

JUNIOR HIGH/MIDDLE SCHOOL CTE ENDORSEMENTS: GRADES 6-8
Three middle/junior high school endorsements (listed below) are available to assist teachers in becoming qualified to teach CTE courses in grades 6-8 when a CTE-endorsed teacher is not available. These endorsements can only be given to teachers with an Elementary Education, Middle School or Secondary Education License.

For additional information, please contact the appropriate CTE state specialist.
