Career Technical Education

Career and Technical Education (CTE) Resource

What is Career and Technical Education?  

Lane offers more than 40 one-and two-year educational programs (degrees or certificates) that provide training to enter a specific line of work. Some examples are Nursing, Accounting, Graphic Design, Water Conservation Technology and Computer Game Development. We provide extra training and support for women exploring "non-traditional" programs of study that lead to high-demand, high-wage careers.

What assistance does the Women's Program CTE Student Advisor provide?

  • Continued coaching and advising for women in non-traditional programs of study (where less than 25% of the students are female)
  • Information on high-wage, high demand jobs and the training programs that would prepare you for those fields
  • Assistance in figuring out what salary you will need to support your family
  • Help finding women in non-traditional careers for mentoring and "informational interviews"
  • Tours of non-traditional work sites in the community and training facilities at Lane
  • Assistance in getting the skills needed to be successful in the classroom and on the non-traditional worksite. For example, tutoring or extra practice time on a specific skill. See: Workshops
  • Hands-on experience in some areas. For example, time to try a jackhammer, a sheet metal bender, or a web design program.
  • Connections to local employers and associations that support women in non-traditional careers.
