  • 1. NASDCTEcFall Conference Career Technical Education Framework for California Public Schools,Grades Seven Through Twelve

2. CTE Model Curriculum Standards - Background

  • Legislation in 2003 mandated the creation of CTEStandards and Framework
  • Standards adopted May 2005
  • Framework approved January 2007
  • All standards are models
  • CTE standards organizedin 15 sectors (clusters) and 58 pathways

3. Goals

  • TheCTE standardsare a tool to:
  • Support mastery of essentialemployability skillsandtechnical skillsand rigorousacademic contentstandards
  • Develop ahighly skilled and educatedworkforce which contributes toeconomic prosperity
  • Support aseamless transitionto postsecondary education and/or career entry
  • Improvestudent achievement

4. CTE Standards are presented by Industry Sector and Pathway,not by course or grade. Why?

  • Course content, nomenclature and grade levels vary
  • Local industry needs may require customized pathway development
  • Some pathways require academic courses as prerequisites or as part of the pathway.

5. The 15 Industry Sectors:

  • Agriculture & Natural Resources
  • Arts, Media & Entertainment
  • Building Trades & Construction
  • Education, Child Development, & Family Services
  • Energy & Utilities
  • Engineering & Design
  • Fashion & Interior Design
  • Finance & Business
  • Health Science & Medical Technology
  • Hospitality, Tourism, & Recreation
  • Information Technology
  • Manufacturing & Product Development
  • Marketing, Sales, & Service
  • Public Services
  • Transportation

6. Career Pathways

  • A sequence of courses leading to a degree, certificate or licensure, and/or gainful employment.
  • Two or more Career Pathways
  • per Industry Sector
  • There are 58 Career Pathways represented in the Standards

7. Career Pathway Examples

  • Health Science & Medical Technology Industry Sector
  • Biotechnology Research and Development
  • Diagnostic Services
  • Health Informatics
  • Support Services
  • Therapeutic Services
  • Information Technology Industry Sector
  • Information Support & Services
  • Media Support & Services
  • Network Communications
  • Programming & Systems Development

8. 2 Types of Standards: -Foundation Standards-Pathway Standards

  • Foundation Standards
  • The common knowledge and skills all students need to master within each industry sector that prepares them
  • for success in the workplace and readies them for postsecondary education and training

9. Foundation Standards

  • 1. Academics (math, science, history-social science, VP arts)
  • 2. Communications (English Language Arts)
  • 3. Career Planning & Management
  • 4. Technology
  • 5. Problem Solving & Critical Thinking
  • 6. Health & Safety
  • 7. Responsibility & Flexibility
  • 8. Ethics & Legal Responsibilities
  • 9. Leadership & Teamwork
  • 10. Technical Knowledge & Skills
  • 11. Demonstration & Application

10. Example of Foundation Standardin 1.0 Academics Building Trades & Construction Sector

  • 1.2 Science
  • Specific applications of Physics (grades nine through twelve)
    • (3.a) Students know heat flow and work are two forms of energy transfer between systems.
    • (3.g) Students know how to solve problems involving heat flow, work, and efficiency in a heat engine and know that all real engines lose some heat to their surroundings.
    • (5.b)Students know how to solve problems involving Ohms law.

11. Pathway Standards

  • Concise statements that reflect the essential knowledge and skills students are expected to master for success in specific career pathways

12. CTE Pathway Standard

  • Sector : Engineering& Design
    • Pathway : Architectural & StructuralEngineering
      • Standard :
      • A6.0 Students understand the use of computer-aided drafting and design (CADD) in developing architectural designs:
        • Subcomponents :
        • A6.1 Know various CADD programs that are commonly used in architectural design.
        • A6.2 Use CADD software to develop a preliminary architectural proposal.

13. Career Technical EducationFramework 14. Vision Statement

  • Career technical education (CTE) engagesall studentsin a
    • dynamic and seamless learning experience resulting in their
    • mastery of the career and academic knowledge and skills necessary to become
    • productive contributing members of society.
