How CTE Benefits Students
What is Career Technical Education?Not all jobs require a bachelor’s degree or even an associate degree. Oftentimes it is the hands-on practice and job skills that will make the difference in pursuing your career path. Our CTE faculty have industry experience and connections with regional employers, so they are able to design curriculum specifically to what employers are expecting. CTE programs at FLC also provide students with opportunities to gain work experience through internships, work-based learning, and industry-certification opportunities. CTE offers a wide range of learning experiences spanning many different career tracks, fields, and industries.
CTE programs equip students with:
- Core academic skills and the ability to apply those skills to real-world 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
- Job-specific technical skills related to a specific career path.
- Opportunities to practice skills through work experience, internships, and other work-based learning.
