Research is an important component of each professional field. This study sought to determine topics that needed further research in the school subjects known as career and technical education. It determined topics that needed to be researched related to high school career and technical education (CTE) and the preparation for teaching CTE in secondary schools. A four-round Delphi study methodology was selected to use to determine this set of research needs. Sixteen research needs with descriptions were identified and consensus was achieved on their importance to conducting future research studies. The research needs included 11 items related to high school CTE and 5 items on the preparation for teaching of CTE. These items provide researchers with a list of research opportunities for conducting studies to better understand the needs and potential contributions of CTE.
