CAREER CONNECTED LEARNING

CTE is at the forefront of innovation in education in Washington. CTE programs in Washington are aligned with rigorous industry and academic standards. Teachers participate in meaningful professional development on curricula and instruction, standards and assessment, and academic integration. Program partnerships and advisories communicate this vision with business and industry partners.  Each year, thousands of CTE students graduate from high school with career goals, job skills, and leadership skills knowing exactly where they will go next to further their academic and hands-on education and training.

Through CTE students:

  • Explore careers in middle and high school, especially careers in high-demand, high-growth fields such as healthcare and green technologies
  • Identify a career goal
  • Write a High School and Beyond Plan, with help from school career and guidance counselors, that identifies the high school and college-level academic and skills-based classes, training programs, and apprenticeships that will best prepare them for their career path of choice.
  • Take classes in high schools, at skills centers, and at community and technical colleges that apply math, science, and other academic subjects in real-life, hands-on ways
  • Pursue rigorous Programs of Study to a registered apprenticeship, industry certifications, and two- and four-year college options.
  • Earn tuition-free college credits as well as high school credits required for graduation
  • Become leaders by participating in skills competitions and community service

As we move forward with our academy model, CTE will play an integral part in the instructional programs in all academies.  Students will be able to participate in a variety of CTE classes designed to engage students in “real world” learning, provide them with an opportunity to attain Industry Recognized Certifications (IRC’s), prepare them for post-secondary education, or give them an opportunity to go directly into the workforce after high school.
