Career Technical Education is more about getting high school students effective.

Aurora Westwood Thompson, the Chief of Vocational Development and State and federal services for the Nevada Joint Union High school District, states, "It focuses all these traditional (Regional Occupational Program) frameworks and places them in the 21st century." We also look at the markets in our city where we see potential employment. We 're bringing the workforce growth program right forward. It leaves the model of dividing university careers in a way that puts everything in one pot, in our region's career in general.

A large part of CTE involves students in the local sectors in developing the skills necessary to succeed in their post-secondary careers, but the program has had to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"The internships and working-based learning are a major part of CTE and we have always worked on it in the last year," Thompson said. "Nevada Union and Bear River have internship coordinators. Its main function and purpose are to place the students in industries for shadowing, paid or unpaid internships, and it takes a different shape when we look at the following year.

"We think at first, "Oh, this year we're not going to get anyone graduating," but instead we realized 'We should do better.'

Thompson said that she is going to reach community partners and explore internship options that are not health hazards for the student.

"There is definitely going to be another look but we want to make things as local as possible and not just use packaged goods, multimedia internships from the whole USA. We want to ensure the presence of our local industries.

CTE teaches on agriculture and natural resources, the arts, entertainment and communication technologies, construction and architecture, engineering and architecture, health sciences and medical technologies, hospitality, and leisure activities.

"All these careers are now highly demanded, based on our workforce needs," said Dan Frisella, Superintendent of Nevada's Joint Union Assistant. "Selectors with unique expertise are being employed by the industry. It is more viable than going to college and then getting to know it from there. It is a way of working."
