The Ocean County Vocational Technical School District continues to offer students career-related experience in the workplace through the cooperation of businesses and professionals throughout our communities.

Our partners bring students into the workplace to gain practical experience and advance their skills. Students gain vital experience through several initiatives such as the Cooperative Education Program, apprenticeships and job shadowing.

OCVTS strives to prepare skilled and motivated students who meet the needs of Ocean County’s ever-changing workforce, and we encourage new businesses to open their doors to the endless possibilities that result from partnerships with our schools.
