The Technical Centers That Work (TCTW) initiative provides for and encourages instructional and leadership practices that improve student success. The unknown is the impact of TCTW on career and technical education (CTE) teacher self-efficacy. In this mixed-methods research project, CTE teachers at area career centers in Missouri were surveyed to determine their level of self-efficacy. Teachers in both TCTW affiliated and non-TCTW affiliated schools took part in the survey. There was found to be no significant impact of TCTW affiliation on CTE teacher self-efficacy. There was minimal impact of the understanding and implementation of the TCTW key practices. The impact was solely on the instructional training needs of the teachers. TCTW appears to provide the training that meets the needs of the CTE teachers.
