••• WHAT IS THE CTE PROGRAM? •••
The Culver City Unified School District Career & Technical Education Program maximizes regional resources to provide a variety of excellent career and technical training for high school students. Our goal is to determine and meet both the career exploration and training objectives of students and the labor market needs in Los Angeles County. On the Westside, there are CTE programs at Beverly Hills High School, Culver City High School and Santa Monica High School.
••• WHY SHOULD YOU ENROLL IN CTE? •••
1. EXPAND YOUR EDUCATIONAL OPTIONS
A CTE course adds a new dimension to learning - "hands-on" in addition to "eyes-on". Many students learn better that way. A CTE course reinforces basic academic skills and relates them to the "real world", showing students how reading and math are important in everyday work situations.
Many CTE courses offer workplace-learning opportunities for students, with paid or unpaid intern-ships.
2. HELP YOU ACQUIRE LIFELONG SKILLS & HABITS TO APPLY TO ANY CAREER
Self-confidence •Self-awareness • Good work habits • Practical problem-solving • Teamwork • Punctuality • Reliability • Cooperation • Personal Responsibility
3. PRE-TEST” CAREER INTERSTS BEFORE COLLEGE
CTE teachers know what it takes to succeed in a particular career field because they have been there! They come to CTE straight from business and industry. CTE programs instill the desire to learn because every student feels a sense of accomplishment. This leads to the self-assurance young people need to achieve their goals.
