The Career and Technical Education Advisory Committee is appointed by school districts to help improve programs that prepare students to enter and succeed in the workforce. Members, who represent business and labor, have expertise in the skills and competencies needed for specific occupations. Because committee members have extensive knowledge of the area they advise, instructors and administrators take their role seriously. Committees are goal-oriented and achieve results. They promote constructive and necessary change within a program, generate new ideas and serve as advocates for quality career and technical education.
