We provide professional development events for Career and Technical Education educators, professionals, workforce development partners, business/industry and employers, and community partners with a vested interest in career and technical education.

The Annual CTE Works! Summit is Minnesota's largest conference convening everyday leaders in Career and Technical Education (CTE) across the full spectrum of education and workforce systems. This annual event is where we reimagine college and career readiness and workforce development through conversation, innovation, and shared best practices. Together, we can drive economic prosperity for every Minnesota learner from high school to college and create impactful change.
