TIME FOR THE TRADES 

Discover the advantages of career and technical
education

Career and technical education continues to surface as a tested strategy to engage students in their learning and prepare them for postsecondary education

Western Chester County Chamber of Commerce has developed an ongoing series named Time for the Trades. These events highlight Career and Technical Education in our region and connect education with private businesses to develop workforce. 

 

The purpose of education is to ensure that we have a skilled workforce and engaged citizenry to keep our economy, communities, and families healthy and productive. While the benefits of college are already widely known, success in our economy and society isn’t limited to the attainment of a four-year college degree. Career and technical education continues to surface as a tested strategy to engage students in their learning and prepare them for postsecondary education and the complex world of the 21st Century.
