The Common Career Technical Core (CCTC), a set of common, program-level standards for CTE that is fewer, higher and clearer. The CCTC is built from the foundational components of the Career Clusters™ Knowledge and Skills Statements along with recent research and input from education and industry experts. The role of the standards is to establish targets for programs of study (POS). States are expected to voluntarily work to adopt the CCTC over the course of the next few years. NASDCTEc is working with states during the transition to the CCTC along with providing updates to educators and the public. The database within this system allows for access to the CCTC standards and supporting resources to assist with implementation of the standards.
In addition to the CCTC standards, a set of Green/Sustainability Knowledge and
Skills were developed in six Career Cluster™ areas along with an overarching set
for all areas, through a project funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
Access to the green/sustainability statements is also available in the database.
