New Hanover County Schools Career and Technical Education to Participate in Students@Work℠ Month

New Hanover County Schools, Career and Technical Education department is pleased to join businesses across North Carolina and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction for Students@Work℠ Month. This program serves a critical role in our state’s work-based learning efforts as it helps middle school students become aware of potential careers and the skills needed to be successful in those careers.

The 2019 Students@Work initiative includes more than 280 employers and 46,000 students statewide. Throughout the month, students will hear from guest speakers or take part in worksite visits that will help them learn firsthand about the careers available in their local community.

Career and Technical Education (CTE) is participating in the program through various extended learning opportunities throughout the month of March. Students will be able to visit employers in Wilmington and gain insight on career opportunities

Students@Work℠ is a joint initiative between the North Carolina Business Committee for Education (NCBCE) and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction and is made possible by a grant from GSK.
