Advisory Committee

  • A CTE Program Advisory Committee is a group of individuals whose experience and abilities represent a cross section of a particular program area. The primary purpose of the CTE Program Advisory Committee is to assist educators in establishing, operating, and evaluating the CTE program – which serves the needs of the students, the community, and the business/industry partners – and to provide expertise and insight about current/future industry and technological changes. Given this ever-changing economy and workforce, students need your help! 

    CTE programs should be tailored to meet the workforce development needs of the community and the needs and interests of the individual students. Program advisory committees strengthen collaboration between those responsible for CTE programs and the communities they serve. CTE programs that operate without program advisory committees (or without strong program advisory committees) could potentially be covering out-of-date material, teaching students skills that are obsolete, or missing great opportunities that could be offered to students. CTE programs with full advisory support typically teach the most current curriculum and apply the newest technology. This gives the students unique advantages in comparison to students of programs that rely only on teachers’ experience or occasional curriculum updates, etc.
