Welcome!

We would like to welcome you to the Office of Career and Technical Education for the School District of Philadelphia’s Website. As part of the Secondary Education Movement, the Office of Career and Technical Education has been revitalized. Vocational Education throughout the district has been brought back from the brink of extinction.

Being included in the Office of Secondary Education’s Strategic Plan has created stability and a new found life in Vocational Education for the School District of Philadelphia. Principle Two of the Office of Secondary Education’s Strategic Plan includes an increase in learning options for students including career and technical education programs.

Some of the examples of the goals of the Office of Career and Technical Education are requiring schools to integrate academic, vocational and technical training, create a three year standardized sequence of courses, increase the use of technology, provide professional development opportunities to staff, develop and implement evaluations of program quality, expand and modernize quality programs, and link secondary and post-secondary vocational education.
