Career and Technical Education (CTE) can benefit students directly by affording earning incentive, both before and after graduation. It can provide indirect benefits by increasing student involvement, retention, persistence and motivating them to postsecondary education and the pursuit of lifelong learning. Many factors contribute to these outcomes. Career and Technical Education programs inspire students to get involved in their learning by engaging them in problem-solving activities that lead to the development of knowledge and by providing them with hands-on activities that permit them to apply the knowledge. In addition, CTE programs bring students and adults (parents, teachers, community leaders) together in a setting of joint learning. They offer opportunities for students to intermingle with community members, potential employers, and students and teachers who share parallel career/vocational interests through various organizations
