To enroll your child in a CTE Pathway, speak with your student's high school counselor.
You may think that high school students are too young to be making a decision about a career, but it is important to remember that your teens can expect to change jobs and careers many times as adults. With that in mind, helping your teens through the process of choosing a career that is a good match will be important in preparing them for that workplace reality. And while your teens may change their minds, the skills that they will learn while in a CTE Pathway, are transferable to other careers later on.
There are three basic questions that need to be asked in choosing a Career or a Pathway:
Who am I?
What do I want to do?
How do I get there from here?
Sometimes people are lucky and just fall into a career that is a perfect match for them. Others have a hard time getting out of a career that no longer works for them because of finances or where they are in life. Grossmont Union High School District students have an opportunity to “try on” a career by participating in a CTE Pathway. To help your teens pick a CTE Pathway that is a good match, have them log on to Career Cruising and work through the assessment tools that will help them focus on who they are and want they want to do. Then, they can continue to explore what careers are a good match for them and what CTE Pathway will best prepare them for that career. You can check out the other links on this site for more career exploration ideas.
