Career academies: Why choose between liberal arts and career education? Students can have both!

Career academies: Why choose between liberal arts and career education?  Students can have both! | Career Exploration & Job Shadowing | Scoop.it
Many high schools across the country and here in North Carolina are adopting an education model, known as “Career Academies,” which integrates rigorous academics with career technical education and real world work-based learning experiences. These multi-year programs are developed around a particular industry theme so the classes are taught through the lens of that industry sector and allow students to gain hands-on experience in that field. These programs do not require students to choose a “college track” or a “career track.” Rather, they allow students to prepare for both.

Here in Charlotte, we have the Academy of Engineering program in five high schools – the highest concentration in the country. They learn in the classroom how core subjects, such as algebra, are used in the engineering field. And they then see those “academics” in action in the real world through internships and job shadowing.

Don’t pick between majors, choose career options instead

Don’t pick between majors, choose career options instead | Career Exploration & Job Shadowing | Scoop.it
As a first-year student, you have about four to five years before you graduate. However, after graduation you have 40-50 years before you retire — perhaps longer. Despite this, college students tend to focus on the short-term decisions of choosing a major and less so on the long-term decision of choosing a career.
