    Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE)


    Career and Technical Education (CTE) prepares individuals for high-skill, high-wage, in-demand employment that furthers Illinois global competitiveness. CTE programs provide learners with the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to thrive in college and careers. All students benefit from career connected learning that emphasizes real-world skills within a selected career focus. Students gain practical knowledge while discovering and preparing for success in potential careers. 

    The CTE State Leadership Grant will deliver conferences in two different geographical locations of the state to provide professional learning aimed at program improvement for career and technical educators statewide.

    Conferences at a minimum must at least align with the statewide definition of career and technical education and ISBE's Board goals and equity principles. Conference activities must provide high-quality, research based professional learning and development opportunities for CTE teachers, school counselors, administrators, support staff primarily in grades 9-12, and provide career-connected exploration and activities for middle grade educators.
