What is Career Technical Education?

The VHS Career Technical Education (CTE) program is designed to provide all students with opportunities for enhanced learning experiences, preparation for future career decisions and a realistic view of the world of work.

Elective CTE Courses provide students with the academic knowledge and skills needed to prepare for post-secondary education. Many of the CTE courses are articulated with Palomar College and offer students an opportunity to earn college credit. Students also receive a strong experience and understanding of all aspects of the industry they are considering for a future career. The competency based applied learning methodology featured in CTE courses contributes to the academic knowledge, problem solving abilities, work attitudes, technical expertise and future employability.
