Combining academic programs with real hands-on learning, Career and Technical Education (CTE) provides students with a variety of paths for the future. Some go on to college, others go right into a career. All have started to achieve the occupational and 21st Century skills so important in building a successful life and career. WSWHE BOCES offers CTE programs to all secondary students in the region, including female students interested in pursuing traditionally male dominated fields.

Catherine Hall,  jumped right in to the Heavy Equipment program. “A lot of girls in my family, including my mom- they can do anything they want. They’re not excluded because of that. So, I grew up with that mindset, and I still have that mindset.”

Getting a jumpstart in a career field is a life changing opportunity for anyone and Catherine is looking forward to her future!
