• CTAE Overview

Career Pathways

  • Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) is preparing students for postgraduation success by teaching employability skills and technical skills that are in demand now and will continue to be in the future. CTAE is supporting businesses across all sectors by training the next generation of talent graduating with credentials, cutting-edge skills, and work experience. Communities across Georgia are benefiting from the local talent pipelines that support existing businesses and economic development efforts.

    CTAE Career pathways are state-approved career enhancement programs defined as a coherent, articulated sequence of rigorous academic and career related courses usually commencing in the ninth grade and leading to an associate degree, and/or an industry-recognized certificate or licensure, and/or a baccalaureate degree and beyond.

    CTAE provides all Georgia students with the opportunity to select at least three sequenced electives in a career pathway, along with recommended academic course work, to prepare them to continue their education at any level or enter the world of work.

    Selection of a pathway will be based on self- awareness and the investigation of occupations plus related educational levels aligned with the pathway. Most high-demand, high-skilled, high-wage occupations in all concentrations still do require education beyond high school. Implementation of career pathways is a collaborative effort between the local system, the Technical College System of Georgia and the University System of Georgia.
