CTE Programs that Work: Kansas City Kansas Community College

Career Technical Education (CTE) is learning that works for America in so many ways – making a difference for students, the economy, business and industry, local communities, schools, and colleges. With interest in CTE at an all-time high, we want to share a new resource that tells in-depth stories about real, inspiring, and top-notch schools and programs through CTE Success Map: Stories of Programs that Work.

This new resource is built from the CTE Success Map, a project released earlier this year that highlights student outcomes data of high-achieving CTE programs in each state.

Physical Therapist Assistant Program at Kansas City Kansas Community College

The Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) program at the Kansas City Kansas Community College exemplifies the forward-thinking dynamic of CTE. The leaders of the program attribute their commitment to lifelong learning and improvement as the most influential component of their success. Their success is apparent – 100 percent of PTA students passed their national board tests last school year.

Learn more about special features of the PTA program, such as professionalism strategies for students, faculty professional development, methods of integrating academic and technical learning, and use of Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education funds.
