Career & Technical Education
While Career & College Promise allows high school students to take college-level courses, tuition-free and accumulate credits that seamlessly transfer to public and private colleges and universities, students who want to pursue a technical career through our Career & Technical Education Program can earn tuition-free credits toward a certificate, job credential, or technical diploma at a North Carolina Community College.
- How is career and technical education different from vocational education?
- Does career and technical education help students finish high school? And does it influence college-going?
- If career-and-technical-education students stop with only a certification or associate degree, can they earn as much money as they could with a bachelor’s degree?
