How many postsecondary partners are required for NYSED CTE Program Approval?
CTE programs applying for NYSED Approval must have a minimum of one postsecondary partner representing a two or four year institution which provides advanced study in the CTE program career pathway area. Schools wishing to provide their students with multiple postsecondary study options beyond graduation may pursue additional postsecondary partners and postsecondary articulation agreements.
Postsecondary partners are instrumental in reviewing program curricula, technical assessment selections and validating technical and employability skills. Postsecondary partners are required to be external review committee members and this requirement may be fulfilled through the NYCDOE CTE Industry Advisory Commissions.
