New Jersey’s county vocational-technical school districts are national models for preparing high school students and adults for college and 21st century careers.
They are the schools of choice for more than 32,000 secondary school students who want more out of high school, and more than 5,000 adult students looking to expand their technical skills and earn certifications and licenses.
Modern career and technical education (CTE) programs link rigorous academics, technical knowledge and real-world experiences to prepare students for challenging careers.
And whether they are headed to college or planning to pursue advanced career-focused training, CTE students learn the “soft skills” that employers value, like teamwork, critical thinking, responsibility and communications.
