What is Career Technical Education (CTE) ROP


Career Technical Education (or CTE) is a program of study that prepares students for college and careers through a multi-year sequence of courses within a career pathway. CTE credentialed teachers prepare students for a comprehensive blend of academic, technical, and employable skills that align with today’s competitive degrees and career opportunities. Mustang CTE students experience high levels of academic engagement, and receive evidence-based instruction, certifications, college credit, and work-based learning opportunities.

ROP stands for Regional Occupational Program, a state-funded educational program providing career preparation and guidance to meet identified educational and industry standards with some on the job training. CTE courses are ideal for students that are determining their career focus, seeking a career, or enhancing their current skills. ESGVROP is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
