Career & Technical Education

WSWHE BOCES Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs provide hands-on learners an opportunity to master academics and technical skills within a subject that interests them and leads to a rewarding career.

Many CTE programs are certified by the New York State Education Department (SED). In addition, many programs are also certified by Business and Industry (B&I).

Each CTE program offered at the WSWHE BOCES has five major curriculum elements that students will acquire over a one year or two year period. Two of the five curriculum elements include English Language Arts and Mathematics. These program elements are taught using a co-teaching model, which teams the CTE subject experts and certified English and Math instructors. Topics in English and Math are tied to specific business and industry course content, which illustrates to students how academic material and business knowledge and skill relate to one another. English and Math elements are taught at the commencement level and meet NYS Standards for students to obtain one (1) credit for each over a two-year period. Program specifics are as follows:

  • Applied Technical Math: 54 hours/yr
  • English Language Arts: 54 hours/yr
  • 1 credit = 108 hours
