Career & Technical Education


Imagine a reality where all learners are given the opportunity and support to realize their full potential.

This reality is possible. Together can we make it happen. Making this vision a reality requires an unwavering, steadfast commitment from all sectors and stakeholders.

We must hold ourselves accountable to do the work even when funding gets tight, political winds shift or questions arise of whether we really need to set the bar so high. We must join together to demand change where and when it is needed, to support reform that is already underway and to applaud those who have made it. It is only through a shared commitment to action that this new vision will become a reality for learners across the nation.

Arkansas Career and Technical Education (CTE) has partnered with Advance CTE for Putting Learner Success First: A Shared Vision for the Future of CTE.
