Career, Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE)



Georgia’s 17 Career Clusters/Pathways provide a structure for organizing and delivering quality Career, Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE) programs in Georgia’s public high schools. Utilizing the Career Cluster model used by most of the United States, Georgia’s 17 Career Clusters/Pathways model represents more than 96 career pathways to help students navigate their way to greater success in college and career. This model also serves as an organizing tool for curriculum design and instruction and provides essential knowledge and skills for the students’ career pathways. Another benefit of this model allows students to discover their interests and passions, empowering them to choose the educational pathway that may lead to success in high school, college and career. The 17 Career Clusters/Pathways encompass both secondary and post secondary education and will strengthen and improve student transition from secondary to post secondary education.
