Research shows that college graduates are more employable, more successful and more apt to “climb the ladder” if they also have CTE skills.

 

CTE Facts: (from the CDE P21 website)

  • 80% of students who take CTE courses meet their college and career goals
  • Students who take a sequence of at least three CTE courses are more likely to attend college than students who take only college prep courses
  • CTE students are more likely to earn a degree than non-CTE college-going students

Career Readiness

Career Technical Education Integrated Pathways:

A career-ready person effectively navigates pathways that connect education and employment to achieve a fulfilling, financially-secure and successful career. A career is more than just a job. To be career ready in our ever-changing global economy requires adaptability and a commitment to lifelong learning, along with mastery of  key academic, technical and workplace knowledge, skills and dispositions that vary from one career to another and change over time as a person progresses along a developmental continuum. Students attain knowledge, skills and dispositions that are inter-dependent and mutually reinforcing.

 

A high school CTE career pathway is defined by the California Department of Education as a sequence of career technical courses that are equal to, or exceed a minimum of 300 hours in one industry sector. This can be made up of one course (Surgical Technologist training is 650 classroom hours and 700 internship hours, therefore it is considered a career pathway) or multiple courses. A high school career pathway completer can then continue from high school to community college, an entry-level job, or a four-year university. The successful outcome of a career pathway is a certification, a degree, an industry license, or a combination of all three that results in obtaining a career.
