We Did! Center for Career and Technical Education of Allegany County The Center for Career and Technical Education (CCTE) serves the skill training needs of students from the three high schools in Allegany County by offering eighteen (18) career and technical programs. The aca- demic curriculum is comparable to courses offered at the three (3) high schools and students are eligible and encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities at their comprehensive high schools. The Board of Education of Allegany County does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, age, national origin, religion, or disability in matters affecting admission to, access to, or operations of its programs, services or activities. Top 10 Things Parents and Students Should Know about the Center for Career and Technical Education (CCTE) 1 Career and Technology Education (CTE) - it’s more than a name change! Career and Technology Education (formerly vocational education) gives students a head start on college and careers in high-skill, high-wage ,and high-demand occupations organized in ten different Career Clusters, including programs in Information Technology, Building Trades, Law Enforcement, Health Professions, Engineering and more. 2 CCTE is for the career or college bound student. In today’s workplace, continued education and training is a given. CCTE programs are usually a sequence of 4 or 5 high school courses taken in addition to the aca- demic core classes of math, science, English and social studies. Students completing both the academic require- ments and a CCTE program have the advantage of graduating from high school prepared for college or the workplace. 3 CCTE students are able to earn college credits and certifications to give them an extra advantage after earn- ing their diplomas. It’s true! Most of the 18 CCTE programs offer students an opportunity to earn college credit, industry-recognized certifications, or both. As an added bonus, nearly every CCTE program connects to a similar two-year college program which makes it possible for students to make the transition from high school to college. 4 Students apply what they learn in academic classes - and this applied learning increases retention and under- standing! For example, in the Engineering program, Project Lead The Way, students apply skills learned in higher level math courses to “real world” engineering projects. 5 Skill instructors are industry professionals teaching with up-to-date equipment and technology. CCTE teach- ers have worked in their fields as part of their certification. Industry advisory boards help schools design and equip learning labs. Cisco (computer networking) students use state-of-the-art networking software, and Automotive Technician students hone their skills using tools, equipment and curriculum recommended by The National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF). 6 Parents and students can save money! High school is the only time individuals can obtain education focused on career preparation without writing a tuition check! High school students can earn licenses and credentials, such as a Maryland Cosmetology license or a range of computer software certifications, often at a reduced cost compared to the cost of obtaining certifications and licenses outside of high school. CCTE students can also save money on college tuition by earning college credit. Students completing CCTE programs obtain knowl- edge and skills that can help them achieve better-paying jobs while they are attending college. 7 Programs are designed for the future. Maryland industries and businesses partner with local school districts, colleges and the Maryland State Department of Education to create programs of study that prepare students with the knowledge and skills required for current and future careers in today’s global economy. 8 Internships and work-based learning opportunities provide “real world” work experiences and the prospect of developing a professional network. CCTE programs frequently include a final internship or work-based learning experience which helps students develop a network of co-workers and managers who may also become valuable references. 9 Leadership and interpersonal skills are expanded! Students enrolled in CCTE programs can join local chap- ters of national student organizations such as the Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) or Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). Participating in career and technical student organizations like SkillsUSA and other state and national career competitions builds confidence as students demonstrate their skills and knowledge. 10 To enroll your son or daughter or to learn more about CCTE programs, please call the Center for Career and Technical Education office at 301-729-6486 and ask for Mrs. Deborah Bittinger, principal, or Mrs. Jenean Fazenbaker, school counselor.
