Celebrating Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month at OTC
February is Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month, a time to celebrate and acknowledge the vital role CTE plays in preparing our students for careers in the local, regional, and national workforce.
Why is CTE Important?
- CTE programs help to engage students with hands-on learning different from a traditional classroom setting.
- CTE brings adult learners and instructors together promoting a collaborative learning environment where students can apply what they learn.
- CTE allows students to become certified in a trade in less time and at a lower cost than traditional post-secondary options.
- CTE also supports businesses and the economy by equipping students with skills that help them easily transition into the workforce.
