For over two decades, New York City College of Technology has been collaborating with New York City Department of Education in its efforts to address the increasing shortage of certified teachers of Career and Technical Education (CTE) subjects and technology education. The College's Department of Career and Technology Teacher Education (CTTE) offers the only two baccalaureate degree programs within CUNY for preparing high school CTE and PreK-12 technology education teachers.

The CTTE department has collaborated with New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) in the recruitment, preparation, and professional development of technology education and CTE teachers. Prominent among these projects is the Success Via Apprenticeship (SVA) Program, which is a joint project of the NYCDOE, the City University of New York, and the United Federation of Teachers. The SVA program recruits outstanding NYC high school graduates and, over a five-year period, provides them with college-level coursework, high school classroom internships, and industrial work experience required for New York State initial teaching certificate.

Program graduates are contractually obligated to teach in New York City public schools for at least three years immediately following graduation. The SVA program is often described as "the best kept secret" within the New York City Department of Education and has provided the system with outstanding young CTE teachers, many of whom have gone on to earn advanced degrees and have moved into administrative and supervisory positions.
