Council

As articulated by its membership, the mission of the Council is “assuring quality and integrity in career and technical education.” The goals that represent the significant values and purposes to which the Council is dedicated are the following:

  • To offer public assurance that accredited educational institutions provide quality instruction in career and technical education that facilitates learning by students and meeting the needs of the labor market.
  • To provide guidance to institutions for the continual improvement of their educational offerings and related activities.
  • To promote high ethical and educational standards for career and technical education.
  • To enhance public understanding of career and technical education providers and of the value of the education and the credentials offered by these providers.
  • To ensure that the accreditation process validates the achievement of learning and program objectives.

These goals embrace a commitment to integrity and credibility that are intended to result in accreditation by the Council being viewed as a nationally-honored seal of excellence for occupational education institutions. Through its accreditation process, the Council seeks to stimulate the following:

  • validation of job skills;
  • certification of skills for local, state, regional, and national application;
  • portability of skill credentials;
  • placement of graduates in jobs related to preparation received;
  • facilitation of partnerships and consortia through which the United States can continue to compete successfully in the global economy; and
