Career and Technical Education Highlighted

Career and Technical Education (CTE) continues to be an ever-growing part of educational curricula across the country, and Oregon stands as one of the leaders in CTE innovation and initiatives. On Friday, March 22, Oregon Coast Community College and the Lincoln County School District are partnering to showcase CTE programs in Lincoln County. Community members are invited to experience CTE Showcase, set for March 22 from 10am-3pm at the

OCCC Central County Campus, located at 400 SE College Way in Newport.

A variety of experiences will be available, including student demonstrations, presentations about various local CTE programs, edible samples from school culinary programs, and information about the many and varied career and technical education opportunities in Lincoln County. The Lincoln County School District will feature its career tech programs, including welding, culinary arts, natural resources and forestry, drafting, manufacturing, wood working, engineering, visual design and communication, digital design and media, and early childhood education. Oregon Coast Community College will be highlighting programs including early childhood education, Aquarium Science, business, computer science, welding and more.

“These programs together are working to forge our future workforce,” said Matt Batchelor, OCCC Career Connected Learning Systems Navigator. “We, as educational institutions, want to make sure that what is being created and taught is what our local industries need. We are striving to provide a qualified and educated workforce.” Local industry partners from the community will also be present, including Samaritan Health Services, Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians, Lincoln County Parks, Chinook Winds Casino Resort, Oregon Coast

Aquarium, the US Forest Service, and others. If you would like to promote or educate the students and the community about your firm’s career and business opportunities, contact Matt Batchelor at matt.batchelor@oregoncoast.edu.
