Celebrating CTE Awareness Month

June 3rd, 2021

A well-stocked, skilled workforce is essential to the stability of Northeast Indiana’s economy and the region’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) providers are hard at work to make sure that happens.

CTE programs teach specific career skills to high school students that prepare them for employment after graduation or serve as a bridge to post-secondary education. Among the many opportunities is education and training in machining, welding, robotics, healthcare, construction and information technology.

In May, CTE providers observed Northeast Indiana’s CTE Awareness Month by recognizing the accomplishments of graduates through signing ceremonies with employers. The month was designated in 2019 by Northeast Indiana Works and its partners, including the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership. 

Much progress has been made in spreading the message that young people should have before them a full palette of learning options to consider, not just the often touted two- and four-year education pathways.  

The young people who have chosen the CTE route deserve not only recognition for their accomplishments, but the education and career paths they’ve chosen deserve recognition as essential components to a strong workforce. 

Signing events happened at Garrett High School, Impact Institute in Kendallville, FWCS Career Academy in Fort Wayne, Adams-Wells Manufacturing Alliance and Heartland Career Center in Wabash.
