February is Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month and the Trumbull Career and Technical Center (TCTC) celebrated by showcasing programs that are preparing students for high-wage, high-demand careers at the school. As a result of the pandemic, there is a great need for frontline, essential workers and the TCTC continues to prepare local students for careers in these fields by providing hands-on learning experiences.
Our friends at WKBN, Business Journal Daily, and Tribune Chronicle visited the TCTC to explore what career-technical education looks like during the pandemic and how local students are continuing to learn the necessary skills for frontline work. All of these programs prepare students for careers in fields that have remained open during the pandemic.

Thank you to all of the students, instructors, and media partners who participated in the celebration of CTE Month at the TCTC.
