Philadelphia - On Tuesday, March 19, the Student Success Centers hosted an Opportunity Fair for high school seniors who have expressed an interest in Career technical education (CTE) and vocational schools.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that middle-skill jobs (jobs that generally require some significant education and training beyond high school but less than a bachelor's degree) will make up approximately 45% of all job openings projected through 2014.
Over 20 trade and technical schools and programs from the Philadelphia region and beyond were present to recruit youth and discuss the opportunities available for those looking to pursue careers in these fields.
The event was open to all high school seniors from the eight Student Success Center Schools in Philadelphia, including: Thomas Edison, Samuel Fels, Frankford, Germantown, Abraham Lincoln, Overbrook, University City, West Philadelphia.
