Through exemplary trade and academic programming, the Connecticut Technical Education and Career System (CTECS) prepares trade-bound students to meet the skilled workforce needs in Connecticut.

We envision our schools as the primary pipeline for Connecticut’s skilled labor workforce.

To accomplish this and ensure that our students are properly equipped with the necessary skills needed to be successful in a 21st-century economy, partnerships with local and national businesses, organizations, and industry leaders are invaluable. Our partners help us provide the best career and technical education possible to our student body.
