What is a CTE Industry Partner?

  • Industry partners are local businesses who partner with various West Ada Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs.  These business partnerships create an awesome opportunity for students to become engaged and connected to the local workforce in their community.  Industry partners serve the CTE programs in many ways including:

    • Serving as a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) member
    • Offering company tours to CTE students
    • Providing sponsorship to our CTE programs
    • Creates opportunities for student internships, apprenticeships and job shadowing
    • Potential avenues for future student employment

  • MHS collision center     RHS construction students     MHS auto students in lab     MHS diesel lab
