Plans of Study

Colorado Career & Technical Education (CTE) believes that every student should be on a path that leads to career success, through seamless plans of study fostering academic and technical achievement, to develop a globally competitive workforce for Colorado. Use of this model will enhance Colorado’s ability to grow a globally competitive workforce.

A Plan of Study is a coherent, articulated sequence of rigorous academic and career-related courses, commencing in the ninth grade and leads to an industry-recognized certificate or licensure, and/or an associate or baccalaureate degree and beyond.

A Plan of Study provides:

  • A “road map” to their career goals
  • Plans are flexible, allowing students to explore and update their plans of study
  • Highlights secondary to postsecondary linkages allowing for seamless transition to further education
  • Demonstrates the importance of CTE programs as a progression of learning
  • Connects the Career Path Courses with the appropriate Core Academic Courses to promote student success
  • Empowers students to take greater responsibility for their own career research and planning

The following Plans of Study are organized according to the Colorado Career Cluster Model.
