Advisory Council for CTE

The Advisory Council for Career and Technical Education is charged by New York State law with the task of advising the Department of Education on the development, administration, and evaluation of policies and programs relating to Career and Technical Education. 

The Council defines its mission as assisting the Department of Education in providing to all CTE students relevant and meaningful programs for acquiring high-level academic and workforce preparation skills. The Council is comprised of high-level contacts and volunteers from business and industry, labor, postsecondary education, and the non-profit sector. The six-priorities of the Advisory Council include:

  • CTE program approval
  • Teacher training
  • Internships and job placement
  • Scholarships
  • Competitions
  • Mentoring

The full group meets five times during the year. There are also a number of working groups which serve as subcommittees of the Advisory Council that convene between the full group meetings. The working groups include:

  • Executive Committee
  • Program Planning and Review
  • Workforce
  • Outreach and Marketing
  • CTE Students with Disabilities
  • Gender Equity
  • Higher Education
  • CTE Students Advisory Committee

In addition to members of the CTE Advisory Council, meetings are also attended by Affiliates (permanent representatives from select city government agencies), NYCDOE administrators and teachers, and invited Observers (business or non-profit organizations currently working with CTE schools).


Future Development

The CTE Advisory Council is currently working on:

  • Developing strategies to source employment opportunities at NYC government agencies for CTE students
  • Supporting capacity development for business and industry to increase resource-allocation to CTE schools
  • Working to rebrand CTE through parent engagement strategies and community forums
  • Creating an array of best-practices around policy and professional development to support CTE students with disabilities.
