BECOMING COLLEGE AND CAREER READY: Real World Training for Real World Jobs
Today’s economy demands a better educated workforce than ever before, and jobs in this new economy require more complex knowledge and skills than the jobs of the past.

People often say that there are no jobs for young people when the reality is that there are plenty of jobs available for “skilled” workers.

The Cherokee County Career & Technology Center is providing our local economy and the State with just that.

Students attending the Career Tech Center are receiving rigorous, engaging, and relevant training in the some of the fastest growing fields in the State and in the Nation.

“Career and technical education (CTE) is an educational strategy for providing young people with the academic, technical, and employ-ability skills and knowledge to pursue post secondary training or higher education and enter a career field prepared for ongoing learning” (Partnership for 21st Century Skills, Association for Career and Technical Education, & National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Consortium, 2010).
