CTE Open House: In-Service (revised)

Virginia Western invites you to join us on Monday, August 18 for our Career and Technical Education Open House.  The School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and the School of Business, Technology and Trades offer numerous Career and Technical Education Programs leading to Certificates or Associate Degrees that provide the necessary skills for today’s market and employment requirements. The curriculum in our programs gives students the practical experience they need to succeed through a combination of classroom instruction, hands-on laboratory work, and on-the-job training. CTE Pathways provides students with technical training to prepare for a successful career. The ultimate goal of this Open House is to make our educational partners aware of the CTE programs available at Virginia Western and how very vital they are in equipping students with work and life skills.
