Career & Technical Education Overview

Our programs have been defined as “A series of applied learning methodologies designed to prepare our youth for productive citizenship and lifelong learning,” with a primary purpose of developing a skilled workforce. All students have an opportunity to participate in Career & Technical Programs of Study including, but not limited to, areas of Health Care, Construction Crafts & Trades, Automotive Technology, IT Computer Technology, Culinary Programs, Criminal Justice and Agriculture. Admission requirements for each course can be found in the student course guide/schedule packet of the individual campus where the course is being offered. Please contact the Guidance Counselor at the specific school site for additional information, program requirements and/or any questions you may have.

Additional Opportunities in Career & Technical Education

This course is designed to provide students an opportunity to apply learned skills in the workplace. Career Readiness courses provide students the ability to have successful workplace experiences as they explore jobs in their chosen career field. Paid or non-paid internships provide students with interpersonal skills, leadership opportunities, and workplace ethics.

All students in EBR schools have the opportunity to obtain IBCs (also known as credentials) that are recognized in industries throughout the world. An IBC acknowledges that the required skill levels have been met for specific job standards. All career clusters have varying level IBCs. In Business and Information Technology examples range from office tasks (Word, PowerPoint, Excel) to development of websites, apps, and computer repair. Other IBC examples are craft skills (electrical, welding, carpentry, HVAC, etc.)
