Tech Prep Teaches Workplace Skills
Tech Prep is an industry and education partnership committed to providing a highly-trained and motivated workforce, prepared to pursue lifelong learning in a changing technological society.
Tech Prep is a national educational initiative. It includes a rigorous and focused course of study that provides students with essential academic and technical foundations that prepare students with necessary workplace skills.
Under Carl Perkins Title II legislation, Tech Prep must:
- Lead to an associate degree, two-year certificate or apprenticeship.
- Provide technical preparation in at least one field of engineering technology; applied science; mechanical, industrial or practical art or trade; or agriculture, health or business.
- Build student competencies in mathematics, science, technology and communications through a sequential course of study.
- Lead to employment or further education.
Federal Tech Prep funds were eliminated on July 1, 2011.
