On Saturday, October 27, 2018, middle school students and their families can stop by the DOE’s annual NYC CTE High School Fair to learn more about the exciting Career and Technical Education (CTE) high school programs located throughout the City.
CTE high schools provide students with opportunities to learn skills and gain real world experiences that are in high demand by today’s careers. City students can choose from over 270 CTE programs across 16 different career clusters, including:
- Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources;
- Architecture & Construction;
- Arts, A/V Technology & Communications;
- Business Management & Administration;
- Government & Public Administration;
- Health Science;
- Information Technology;
- Law, Public Safety, Corrections & Security; and
- Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM).
Throughout the fair, participants will be able to speak with school leaders, current students, and industry partners to learn more about the City’s high-quality CTE offerings, including the courses, community partnerships, internships, and career paths they can provide their students. School representatives will also be available to showcase some of the robots, 3D printers, and drones that CTE students use throughout their coursework.
In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to attend our gender equity panel, “Bright Futures: Girls in CTE,” which will discuss how CTE programs can offer young girls pathways into careers where women are traditionally underrepresented.
