    Work-based learning is a critical component within the Peoria CTE programs.  Students participate in field experiences, clinical rotations, and internships to practice their skills within industry to gain mentorship and coaching for future success.



    Peoria CTE students can earn industry certifications while they are in high school to demonstrate a mastery of knowledge and/or skills.  Industry certifications can increase job prospects, marketability to employers and postsecondary institutions.
