National Career and Technical Education Month
Cope Area Career Center Celebrates Career and Technical Education Month
Career and Technical Education (CTE) prepares youth for a wide range of careers and further educational opportunities. According to the U.S. Department of Educations’ Office of Vocational and Adult Education, approximately 12 million students participated in secondary and postsecondary CTE programs.
 
Students and faculty at Cope Area Career Center will join others across the nation during the month of February to celebrate national Career and Technical Education (CTE) MonthTM.  This year’s theme is Opportunities for Career Success! CTE Month provides CTE programs across the country an opportunity to demonstrate how CTE makes students college- and career- ready and prepares them for high-wage, high-demand career fields.
 
“The activities planned over the next month will illustrate the rigor and relevance CTE courses offer our students,” said Sandra Jameson,  Director of the school. “By partnering with the business community, CTE programs are investing in students and providing them with the latest technology and skills that will prepare them to become successful employees and future leaders.”
 
CTE encompasses 94 percent of high school students and 13 million postsecondary students in the United States and includes high schools, career centers, community and technical colleges, four-year universities and more. CTE is a major part of the solution to myriad national economic and workforce problems, such as high school dropout rates, a weakened economy, global competitiveness and massive layoffs. At a time when opportunity for employment is so critical, CTE programs in every community are ensuring students are equipped with the skills to successfully enter the workforce.
