Capital Region BOCES to launch month-long celebration of Career & Technical Education

Capital Region BOCES will celebrate national Career & Technical Education (CTE) Month throughout February with a series of events at its Career and Technical Education Center – Albany and Schoharie campuses.

The events will highlight the unique partnership Capital Region BOCES maintains with more than 300 businesses, education and labors organizations—a partnership that helps students not only achieve their career goals but helps employers address the critical shortage of skilled labor in this region and beyond.

Activities range from presentations by business partners, such as Milton CAT, to a career fair for aspiring cosmetologists to the first-ever “Shadow a CTE Scholar Challenge” in which area school administrators will become a CTE student for a session, taking part in the full class experience alongside a student from their district.
