Students get to learn by doing, which gives them more information and skills that help them get ready for the real world and possible jobs. In each cluster, they spend about ten days studying in classes that last about 45 minutes each. CTE-related lessons are taught in a 32-week schedule.
The Office of Educational Innovation manager at the WVDOE, James Coble, was there for the training classes. He said that in 2022, the first-year middle school teachers learned about CTE, and they had a great turnout, and the same was true this year.
