Get Job Ready at Leeward: National CTE Month

CTE Month, icons of various programs

Prepare for today’s competitive job market.

Our Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs provide you with industry-relevant skills for high-wage, high-demand careers.  CTE encompasses many different types of education, from classroom learning to certification programs to work-based learning opportunities outside the classroom, to non-credit workforce development programs.

The CTE courses are taught by faculty who are experts in their fields, have real world experience and will take the time to help you. You’ll learn how to keep pace with rapidly changing technological advances, while discovering the work habits and attitudes necessary to succeed in the workplace. You can also take advantage of our Cooperative Education classes that enables you to gain valuable on-the-job training and network with potential employers.

Whether you’re beginning your career, pursuing a job promotion, or considering a career change, our CTE programs can help you succeed.
