Career development is a vital part of one's educational career and is a school-wide initiative. Individuals define and re-define career-related choices and outcomes in a life-long process. Labor trends indicate that many workers will change jobs an average of 7-10 times in their career, will work in teams, and will need more education and training to be competitive in their selected field. CTAE provides the tools, knowledge and resources that assist young people along to make these critical education and career-related decisions.

The implementation of career pathways is a national trend in Career, Technical and Agriculture Education and is an over-all education and career planning process involving ALL students. Choosing a career pathway during high school helps maximize opportunities for students to be better prepared for their next step in the education and career planning process-the workforce or postsecondary education.
