Director's Message


Aloha and welcome to the Career and Technical Education Center Web site at the University of Hawai`i. Our office is focused on workforce development through education and training in partnership with economic development. Career and technical education plays a vital role in the State's economy and its future economic well being. With your support, CTE can play an even more important role in revitalizing the State’s economy. CTE needs you to advocate for more and improved programs, teacher preparation, and professional development so that our future workforce is prepared to meet the demands of the changing workplace.


Within this site you will discover the many facets of CTE that link to your interests. Whether you are searching for resources that you can use or information to assist in your advocacy, we encourage you to visit this website often for updates and announcements.


Visit us often and feel free to provide us with feedback to help us help you build Hawai‘i’s Career and Technical Education.


Me ke aloha pumehana
