Career and Technical Education (CTE) is an integral part of the comprehensive secondary school program in Wake County. The mission of Career and Technical Education is to provide offerings that meet student needs, interests, abilities, and aspirations and respond to actual or anticipated opportunities for employment, advanced education, and practical life application. The Career and Technical Education Section promotes best practices that enhance teacher effectiveness to improve student achievement and encourage responsible career choices.
At Broughton High School, introductory courses are available at grades 9 and 10, advanced and specialized instruction at grades 11 and 12. Courses are offered in the areas of business and information technology, career development, family and consumer sciences, marketing, technology, and trade and industry. Each high school has a Career Development Coordinator to support the school-to-career connection and facilitate business alliance activities. Special Populations Coordinators provide support services for qualifying students needing special assistance or intervention to succeed in a CTE course. Dual enrollment and advanced placement opportunities are available at local community colleges.
