Work Based Learning
CTE students that are driven and successful in a CTE program are allowed to participate in that program for a second year, if space is available. Beyond enjoying the program, these students generally have a solid interest in pursuing a career in that field. In Work Based Learning, students are taught soft skills, how to draft a resume and cover letter, and are exposed to many other aspects of obtaining and keeping a job.
Students will be required to take part in an internship during the second semester, putting this knowledge to work. The internship will follow Michigan's Work Based Learning standards, in which the student's Career and Educational goals should line up with the chosen job. CTE has a many wonderful relationships within the community, and it is inspiring to see what the students learn on the job with such generous opportunity from our partners. Those who do not obtain an internship are required to complete advanced assignments within their CTE course.
