Career Technical programs allow students the opportunity to earn post-secondary course credits while in high school. Students are enrolled as both post-secondary and secondary school students. The credits they earn are applied towards high school graduation and a post-secondary program. The South Fraser Career Technical Consortium is a partnership between Kwantlen Polytechnic University and the Delta, Langley, Richmond and Surrey School Districts.
CTC transition programs lead to post secondary studies in areas other than the skilled trades. Transition programs for technical training for skilled trades are covered under ACE IT. The benefits of taking a Career/Technical Transition Program include:
- Secondary school credits towards graduation and post-secondary credits towards a diploma or certificate
- Introduction to a post-secondary environment
- Opportunity to take courses not normally available through secondary school classes
- There is a rigorous interview process as seats are limited.
