Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs are one of the most promising approaches to fast track students to enter the cybersecurity workforce. CTE provides students with cybersecurity-focused technical, academic, and employability skills through rigorous and applied coursework, work-based experiences, career and technical student organization leadership and competition experience, and industry-recognized certifications. This session will unpack the difference between CTE programs and Programs of Study, highlight the statutory framework, and federal funding that enables formal CTE Programs of Study, and provide examples of CTE program options and Programs of Study that have been designed to position students to have successful cybersecurity careers.
