The mission of Career Technical Education in Bertie County Schools is to help empower Bertie students for effective participation in a global economy as world-class workers and citizens.
WHAT IS CTE?
Some of us remember it as Vocational Education but it is now referred to as Career and Technical Education (CTE). CTE gives students the chance to gain a deeper understanding of academic concepts and learn technical skills. Classes are offered in middle school and all high schools. These programs are aligned with related programs at local public community colleges. This allows students to easily continue their studies in college to earn a degree, diploma, or certification. Students can study fields ranging from agriculture and art, to health and human services, to engineering and business.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CTE?
CTE classes help students connect what they are learning to the REAL WORLD! CTE helps students gain key skills to help them get a job after they graduate. It's also a great way to explore career options and meet the people who work in them. Students are also able to earn college credit in high school which can save time and money later on.
