Career Technical Education (CTE) prepares high school students for high skill, high demand careers in a competitive, global economy. Lakeland Community College collaborates with our CTE Partners, employers, and communities to develop and deliver opportunities for students to be Career Focused, Job Ready!
Rigorous educational pathways, beginning as early as seventh grade, can lead to many postsecondary education and career opportunities. While in a CTE program, students can earn college credit from Lakeland Community College, obtain industry recognized credentials, and begin to network in their chosen field with internships, work-based learning experiences and apprenticeships.
Students interested in enrolling in a CTE program should contact their high school counselor.

I graduated with my associate degree from Lakeland while at the same time graduating as Valedictorian from high school. I plan to attend the Holden University Center to complete my bachelor's degree in criminal justice. Layce Artman College Credit Plus
One thing I really love about Lakeland and being in the honors program is that the teachers have small classes and they are very devoted to their students. My friends at four-year institutions are taking the same intro classes that I am, but in large lecture halls with a lot more students. Michelle Timms Associate of Arts
