Career & Technical Education
Career & Technical Education is a program of study that involves a multi-year sequence of courses covering technical and occupational knowledge. The goal is to provide learners with a pathway to postsecondary education and/or career. You can think of this as a way for learners to “major” while in high school and focus on elective courses of specific occupational interest. iLEAD Exploration is offering the following career pathways:
- Patient Care
- Public Service
- Childhood Development
- Performing Arts
- Game Design
To complete a CTE Pathway, learners need to choose a pathway, identify a career within that pathway, and then complete a two-year sequence of courses. Talk with your EF (educational facilitator) about adding a CTE pathway to your courses for this school year.
Don’t see a career of interest above? That’s okay! There are many CTE opportunities available through your local community college. These programs offer state-of-the art equipment and accredited certificates that can lead directly to a career. As a bonus, you can also earn college units while working toward your career of interest! A simple search for CTE + the college name will bring up a listing of all their CTE pathways. If you are interested, contact the Strong Workforce Counselor at your local community college.
