With Dallas/Fort Worth-area experiencing an unemployment rate of 7.1% (compared to the national unemployment rate of 6.9%) and with an unprecedented need for frontline and essential workers during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, Tarrant County College is showcasing February as Career and Technical Education Month. The goal of this month-long CTE focus is to promote TCC’s technical programs that prepare students for high-wage, high-demand careers. Throughout the month, TCC will spotlight several of its CTE programs on its social media channels.
Recently ranked one of the nation’s top community colleges or trade schools offering associate degrees in the trades by TradeCollege.org, TCC is joining other higher education institutions to celebrate its workforce mission as part of the national Career and Technical Education Month, which was initiated by the Association for Career and Technical Education.
In order to meet the current and future needs of the regional and state economies, Texas needs a strong workforce. TCC continues to play a major role in providing career and technical education to people throughout the region through its six campuses and multiple industry partnerships.
For decades, the College has helped students jump into workforce quickly by enrolling in one of TCC’s Career and Technical Education Career Pathways certificates and certifications.
