CTE – or Career and Technical Education – helps students make the connection between learning and the real world, helping them answer three key questions: What am I learning? Why am I learning it? How am I going to use it? Hands-on learning is a hallmark of a career and technical education experience. While academics are part of all programs, and students learn via traditional lecture, reading and writing projects, the majority of their time is spent actually experiencing their career field.
Each Mohonasen CTE pathway includes a work-based learning experience – such as an internship or job shadowing opportunity – and at least one College in the High School course. CTE programs also include an “employability profile” where students learn valuable career skills such as communications, interviewing, resume writing, professional etiquette, and ethical standards.
In some cases, a CTE pathway can also be used to meet a graduation requirement.
