Connecting Schools to Careers
A critical part of building the construction industry’s talent pipeline is increasing awareness, in both students and parents, around available career options. What are their options and how can they tap into available resources as they approach and navigate high school? There are multiple ways to connect schools with career options and help students find a path that’s right for them. Here are some typical options for middle school students, and their parents, as they consider their options for secondary education / high school.
CTE Pathways – career education typically available in many high schools
Dual Enrollment – simultaneously getting high school and college credit
Work-Based Learning / Youth Apprenticeships – providing hands on training to students
