Career Technical Centre
The Career Technical Centre is a joint project of School District #34 (Abbotsford) and the University College of the Fraser Valley. Students enter the CTC at the Grade 11 level, spend two-and-a-half years enrolled in a specialized career or technical program, and graduate having fulfilled the requirements for both high school graduation and a college-level one-year certificate.
CTC is based on the premise that not all high school students plan to go on to university, and that many would prefer to enter the employment market with solid, certified, technical skills and career training.
The two-and-a-half year CTC programs weave secondary schooling and a full year of college studies into a seamless, fully integrated learning path. Students start their college-level courses in their Grade 11 year.
The purpose of the centre is to prepare students directly for employment in their chosen field upon graduation. Or, in some programs they may choose to ladder their UCFV credits into the second year of a two-year diploma or four-year degree program at UCFV or another post-secondary institution. There are no tuition fees at CTC, so students get a year of college credit at no cost!
Programs currently offered at the Career Technical Centre include:
