Career and Technical Education (CTE) Programs
Windham School District’s (Windham) CTE programs equip students with the necessary skills, training and experience to succeed in the workforce upon returning to their communities.
Increased Employment Opportunities
Integrated Education and Training
A combination of academics, technical training and workforce preparation is imperative for students to navigate today’s workforce.
Windham follows the Integrated Education and Training model by matching students to their career of interest and enrolling them in academic and technical training simultaneously.
Through incorporation of essential industry components into classroom instruction, Windham is producing increased student success.
The Latest Industry Standards
Windham also offers On-the-Job Training (OJT). The OJT program allows students to work in approved Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) jobs for a minimum of six months under the supervision of a skilled Texas Department of Criminal Justice employee.
During their time in the OJT program, students learn important job expectations, industry culture and trade skills they can apply to their desired career fields. Once all requirements have been completed, students earn their OJT certificate, enhancing their employability upon returning to their communities.
