Career & Technical Education (CTE)

What is CTE?

Career and Technical Education (CTE) represents a structured curriculum designed to equip students with the requisite skills and knowledge for a wide spectrum of post-secondary education opportunities, such as technical colleges, four-year institutions, and apprenticeship programs. Grounded in industry norms, these courses seek to usher students into in-demand careers and vocations. The benefits of CTE courses include the ability to:

  • Attain recognized industry certifications, such as in webpage design,
  • Secure both high school and college credits concurrently,
  • Gain entry into local apprenticeships and internship schemes within industry settings,
  • Acquire elective high school credits through paid employment,
  • Construct robust portfolios to showcase individual competencies and employment readiness,
  • Investigate potential careers, familiarize with future job prospects, and stay abreast of trends to ensure long-term employability.

Program of Study

The Career and Technical Education (CTE) Department of the North Kitsap School District has crafted 'Programs of Study', aiming to provide students and their parents with distinct career and academic pathways.

They offer a seamless blueprint for transitioning from high school to post-secondary education or employment. These programs underscore the necessity of early career planning, commencing as early as middle school. The available Programs of Study include:

  • Health Science
