Career & Technical Education (CTE) is at the forefront of preparing students to be “college- and career-ready.” CTE equips students with:
- core academic skills and the ability to apply those skills to concrete situations in order to function in the workplace and in routine daily activities
- employability skills (such as critical thinking and responsibility) that are essential in any career area
- job-specific, technical skills related to a specific career pathway
CTE has an excellent option that will lead to high skill, high wage & high demand jobs. CTE will keep kids in school (dropout prevention). CTE gives Ionia County the skilled workforce necessary to attract new business & industry.
