February is CTE Month!

The Career and Technology Department (CTE) will be celebrating the annual CTE Month which will take place for the month of February. CTE students and staff will use this month to honor the accomplishments and achievements of CTE students and bring awareness to the critical role that CTE serves in helping to prepare our students for a competitive workforce. 

During this month students taking a CTE course at NAHS will be researching various occupations under the U.S. Department of Education Career Clusters, generating job related documents such as a resume, cover letter, reference sheet, as well as conducting mock interviews. In addition, students will have an opportunity to hear from guest speakers in varying career clusters to further understand what their job market entails. 

Students will also create business cards to aide their business portfolio and will also be used in random raffle drawings at the end of guest speaker presentations.
