The Career and Technical baccalaureate degree is designed for students who are employed as Career and Technical Education instructors and who possess job-relevant competence. Several courses are available via web-based instruction even though courses are typically delivered in a traditional classroom setting providing interaction among teacher education faculty, pre-service teachers, and guest speakers. Opportunities also exist for interpersonal and social contact, observation of non-verbal communication, and role modeling. Emphasis in this program of study is on assisting pre-service teachers with the transition from business/industry to education.

Credit by Exam

Students admitted into the Career and Technical Education bachelor’s degree program have the opportunity to earn up 30 technical elective credits that may be applied towards the bachelor’s degree.  Earning credits in this way can provide a substantial cost savings for the teacher candidate.

These credits may be earned by successfully completing the National Occupational Competency Testing Institute’s (NOCTI) Experienced Worker Assessment appropriate to the teacher candidate’s licensure area.  Working in cooperation with the Upper Valley Joint Vocational School, the Workforce Education Department is able to provide testing opportunities in twenty-two licensure areas.
