It’s not that you don’t have the time, rather, it’s you don’t have the time to waste anymore…
Carver Career and Technical Education Center has three major objectives for our training programs. They are:
  • To help students develop the job skills and knowledge that will enable them to get jobs. 
  • To help students prepare for college or other post-secondary education and training. 
  • To help employed adults keep up-to-date in their field and to develop new skills for advancement and promotion. 

Each of Carver Career and Technical Education Center's training programs is made up of the following components: 

Students will study subject matter knowledge through classroom instruction methods such as discussion, lectures, small/large groups, and laboratory assignments. 

Students will develop related performance skills through Simulated Workplace practices and hands-on applications with actual work performed according to industry standards and the Simulated Workplace Protocols

KCS has provided all secondary students with an Apple iPad.  Students can learn valuable technology skills that will enhance their employability. 

Students will participate in employability training also mandated by Simulated Workplace Protocols, such as; interviews, developing a portfolio that includes a resume, a letter of application, certifications, etc. 

Students will learn to use tools and equipment in a safe and correct manner while following the 6S’s in the Simulated Workplace Protocols; sort, straighten, shine, standardize, sustain, and safety.  Safety instruction is an integral part of each training program. 

Students will be tested early in the school year to determine if they need help with basic skills. Carver employs teachers to assist technical students in developing good basic math, reading, science, communication skills, and locating information. 

Students will develop leadership skills through participation in a student organization. These skills teach how to become a team leader and a team player and are supported by Simulated Workplace Protocols.
