The KCTC staff is committed to providing real life and real learning for students in our community.
How can we help students discover their dreams here at KCTC?
- What opportunities are there to explore KCTC programs?
- How do students know if KCTC is right for them?
The purpose of our department is to support student development and the internal ISD schools’ enrollment. The Career Development team organizes individual and group program visits for students to explore the opportunities of KCTC; providing curriculum to support student learning and to provide proper program placement.
We coordinate and facilitate both virtual and in-person program visits for students in over 65 different high schools and home schooled students within Kent County. Our purpose in offering these visits is so that prospective students can attend and learn more about all the different KCTC program options. We also offer 1:1 consultations to assist current students with career exploration. We use assessments and other educational resources to aid students in making a decision for their future career path and, as a result, to identify and prepare for their dream jobs!
The career development team works to train and mentor current students in becoming ambassadors for visitors, creating opportunities for them to lead by becoming hosts to these perspective students. Our goal is to help students navigate their career interests and set a strong foundation now to create a greater tomorrow full of opportunity. Career coaching is the core for student growth, guiding students towards achieving their dreams by giving them the proper planning tools they need.
If you are interested in KCTC, ask your school counselor to schedule a program visit for you or if you are homeschooled, have your parent/guardian contact us. Our mission is to serve the schools of Kent County and expose students to the many careers that are available to them after high school graduation and how KCTC programming can help reach their goals.
