CTE Industry Sectors

Current California Career Technical Education (CCTE) Model Curriculum Standards are organized in 15 industry sectors, or groupings, of interrelated occupations and broad industries. Long Beach Unified offers programs in 10 of the 15 industry sectors. Each sector has two or more career pathways. A career pathway is a coherent sequence of rigorous academic and technical courses that allows students to apply academics and develop technical skills in a curricular area. Career pathways prepare students for successful completion of state academic and technical standards and more advanced post-secondary coursework related to the career in which they are interested.
