Important Coronavirus Updates - 3/27/2020

All VCOE in-person classes are cancelled through May 1.  We hope to resume on Monday, May 4.  In light of our current situation, instruction has moved to a Distance Learning model, primarily through Google classroom and hangout.  Classes already using the Canvas online platform will continue to do so. 

Our instructors have been reaching out to students to determine who has access to Distance Learning, to include internet access and devices.  We request that any student who has not yet communicated with their teacher please email the teacher at the email address on the "For Students" webpage.  

Thanks to all of you for doing our part in preventing the spread of the novel coronavirus in our communities.

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the Career Education Center!  We are a community of educators who are passionate about students. We are here to support each student on their path toward college and a future career.  The CEC focuses on High-Quality programs for grade 11 and 12 students. We offer a variety of classes, including Advanced Welding, Auto Technology and Applied Manufacturing .  We have a broad offering of courses that have been designed in collaboration with industry professionals, most including internships during the second semester. Below is a brief snapshot of some of the great reasons for students to take classes with us.  

 

Industry Certifications

Many of our classes offer industry certifications, each recognized in the workplace, in areas such as Welding, Manufacturing, Cybersecurity, CNA, and Dental Assisting.  These certifications provide students substantial accomplishments for their resume or college applications as well as support students moving directly into the workplace upon program completion.

 

High-Quality CTE

Programs for 2020-2021 have been reviewed to align with the requirements of a high-quality CTE program as defined by the California Department of Education.  All programs meet the hourly requirement of either 300 or 150 hours.  Courses are designed to ensure students are prepared to advance to a post-secondary career education program and/or enter the career workforce  Courses are not designed to be credit recovery options. 

Summer 2020:  High Schools and Districts around the county offer local CTE opportunities to include summer offerings.  Please check with your home school/district to discover local Career Education programs.  Summer 2020 programs are limited to Medical Practicum for students who have completed the required Medical Assisting coursework  Students also may apply to participate in the HOPE healthcare career exploration course at Ventura County Medical Center.  Applications are due April 26.  Learn more by clicking hereThere will be no career exploration Summer Camps at the CEC site in summer 2020.
