What is CTECC?

The Career and Technical Education Curriculum Consortium (CTECC) is a web-based curriculum program initiated in 1998 by the Association of Career and Technical Education Administrators (ACTEA). CTECC has recently transitioned to Atlas Curriculum Mapping Software System. This web-based software allows similar program educators, such as automotive technology teachers, to establish learning communities and share best practices. Curriculum mapping allows teachers to identify gaps, redundancies and misalignments in the curriculum. This approach fosters dialogue among teachers that leads to increased measurable results in student achievement. An online tutorial option with an overview of the site and its functions is available and useful for local staff development.

Applications of CTECC

  • Developing a program of study
  • Preparing an outline of program content
  • Generating an annual teaching calendar
  • Orienting new teachers
  • Obtaining SED program certification
  • Sharing of locally developed materials
