Celebrating #CTEMonth in February
February is Career & Technical Education (CTE) month, when OCM BOCES and schools across the country celebrate the programs that prepare students for the workforce and further their education.
Once considered an educational route for just those students seeking to build vocational skills, CTE is now a pathway for any and all students who are looking to get a jump-start on a wide variety of careers as well as an opportunity to become well-prepared for college, even earning college credits while in high school.
At OCM BOCES, we’ve taken this mission even further with unique, business-embedded programs at WCNY, Driver’s Village, Tracey Road Equipment and more. Students learn in classrooms within these businesses, but also get hands-on experience and the opportunity to work side-by-side with industry professionals.
Want to hear from some of our CTE students? Here are some seniors at our Cortlandville Campus who describe some of the many benefits of choosing a CTE program:
