About Career and Technical Education

Managing the largest career and technical education (CTE) portfolio of any city in the world, the New York City Department of Education supports over 200 programs which train approximately 60,000 students per year. Over the past 90 years, CTE in New York City has evolved from needle-point and jewelry-making to 3D-printing and computer forensics. In collaboration with private sector partners representing nine different industries, our schools work to ensure students graduate college and career ready. 



The mission of our Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs is to ensure all New York City students who graduate from CTE programs will be positioned to pursue competitive postsecondary credentials, degrees, and pathways.
