Postsecondary Transition and Completion

The VCOE Career Education Department supports the development and programming of Career Pathways that start in the high school setting and align with our community colleges: Moorpark College, Oxnard College, and Ventura College. We work closely with our community college partners and facilitate curriculum meetings and articulation activities.  In addition to curriculum alignment, we promote student engagement and program support to ensure seamless transitions for students.

Business Partner Resources

We welcome Business and Industry Partners to connect with Career Education programs across middle and high schools in Ventura County.  We seek partners who will participate on Advisory Committees, providing invaluable feedback and guidance on current industry trends; serve as Field Trip destinations; participate as Guest Speakers either live in person or via Web-based interface; participate in career exploration Signature Events; and provide Internships and Work-Based Learning (WBL) projects for students throughout the county.

When you take our survey, you are able to indicate if you want teachers to outreach directly to you, meaning we will allow our database to be available online, or you will be able to indicate if you would like a member of our staff to outreach to you, meaning we will not post your availability online for teachers to search.
