Communications Campaigns

Create a CTE Communications Campaign

Learn how to execute a successful CTE communications campaign.

Executing a successful Career Technical Education (CTE) communications campaign will help ensure all stakeholders are interested and invested in a high-quality CTE system that serves each learner.

Success will require policy and funding support from federal, state and local sources; engagement by business and industry; leadership in secondary and postsecondary institutions; advocacy among learners, families and communities and more. All of it will be necessary to make sure high-quality CTE is working for all of us.

Advance CTE developed the CTE: Learning that works for America® campaign to help states, districts, schools, institutions and organizations communicate effectively about CTE in their own communities.

To help raise awareness, improve understanding and communicate the important role of CTE Advance CTE has made a number of case-making and campaign resources available below.
