The Cumberland County Schools Career and Technical Education Department (CTE) is working hard to help students achieve a career ready mindset. On January 28th and 29th, nearly 1,000 eighth and ninth grade students flooded the Crown Expo Center to experience the inaugural CTE Pathway Fair. Here they were united with high school, college, and forty industry representatives who helped expose them to sixteen different career pathways. Before attending the event, students completed an interest inventory and a learning style assessment to determine which pathway would be the best fit for them. Upon arrival, the students were grouped with other students from across the county to engage in a hands-on learning experience, as they walked down their chosen pathway.
