Career Education (formerly CTE)

Skyline College career-focused education programs strengthen opportunities for students to engage in high demand career preparation pathways while in high school and gain access to early college through partnerships with local high schools, and other industry partners.

CE programs prepare students for success in high-skill, in-demand; livable wage careers through a curriculum that integrates academics and career focused education with hands-on experience in priority and emerging sectors.

CE allows the granting of college credit for articulated courses and dual enrollment programs that are successfully completed by students while attending high school, or with other industry partners. College credit will be posted to a student’s transcript according to the criteria stipulated in the articulation and dual enrollment agreement.

CE is funded through the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement ACT of 2006 (Perkins IV) using the option of a “10% Reserve” set-aside from Title I, Part C Funding.

CE focuses on five objectives: outreach and career exploration, articulation, concurrent/dual enrollment and work-based learning.
