MN VIDEOS | Hands on — the tech school bunch


Career and technical education courses utilize a hands-on style of learning that promotes both the attainment of technical skills and an understanding of how academic concepts are used in the workplace. These programs can help you prepare for a career. Many high school career and technical education programs are designed to be the first part of a program of study that continues for up to two years beyond high school at a state technical or community college. Students may earn college credits during high school where agreements are in place or where the course is taught through a concurrent enrollment arrangement.
