The overall goal of the Governor’s Career Technical Education (CTE) Initiative (SB 70/SB 1133) is to strengthen California’s workforce development efforts by linking the State’s investment in economic development with its investment in public instruction and other significant public investments. Funds are used for projects that: bring together economic development initiatives and consortia composed of community colleges, high schools, and Regional Occupational Centers and Programs (ROCPs); develop regional articulation councils to create seamless, non-redundant education and training in California that corresponds to economic demand; strengthen existing CTE sectors; increase career exploration for middle school and high school students by improving linkages between industry and education through the application of classroom learning in real-world settings (e.g., as interns and apprentices); and meet critical professional development and capacity building needs.
