School-to-career learning programs at North Montco Technical Career Center combine quality education with worksite learning so students are given the opportunity to apply the valuable skills they are learning.
The School-to-Career office can assist with creating a resume and developing interviewing skills. This office also provides job postings. Some students prefer to explore a trade or profession before deciding to pursue a specific career and technical program or college education. Other students want to gain real-life, on-the-job experience before graduating from high school. NMTCC’s School-to-Career office offers students such opportunities and more.
The programs available to students at NMTCC include:
Pennsylvania Youth Apprenticeship Program (PYAP)
Cooperative Education (Co-op)
This employer-driven program offers paid, on-the-job training experience through a partnership with a sponsoring company. Employers participate with school staff to develop and monitor the curriculum and standards.
A culminating Capstone paid work experience for students in the 12th grade who have secured the recommendation of their technical instructor. Recommended students have the opportunity to obtain real work experience and to practice the specific technical skills they have learned.
Internships are designed to allow students the opportunity to understand more fully the technical career, which they have chosen.
