PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
 
Trade and Industrial Education is a secondary education program to prepare students for careers in eight of the 16 Career Clusters™. While completing course sequences in these Career Clusters™, students participate in instructional units that educate them in standardized industry processes related to concepts, layout, design, materials, production, assembly, quality control, maintenance, troubleshooting, construction, repair, and service of industrial, commercial, and residential goods and products. Where applicable, courses are aligned to industry certifications and/or credentials allowing students the opportunity to prepare for the associated specific certification/credential. Development of 21st century skills including collaboration, critical thinking, entrepreneurial skills, and problem solving is a part of each of the career pathways. Trade and Industrial Education provides students the opportunity to advance in a wide range of trade and industrial occupations. They are prepared for initial employment, further education at the community college or university level, and/or business ownership. A balanced program of classroom study and practical work experiences produces competent workers who can manage resources, work cooperatively, organize and use information, understand complex systems, and apply appropriate technology. Work-based learning strategies including apprenticeship, cooperative education, mentorship, school-based enterprise, service learning, and job shadowing are available through the Trade and Industrial Education program.
