Practicums



Northwest ISD CTE Practicum Program Information Request for Employers


At Northwest ISD CTE, we believe every student should get real: real academics, real skills, and a real high school experience unlike any other. By combining strong academics with robust career-minded education, we expand students’ options and opportunities to make them truly future ready. Together with parents, business leaders and the community, we challenge all students to aspire to their full potential, advance with rigorous academic and technical skills, and achieve a real-world competitive advantage.

The Practicum program is designed to expose students to real world situations and develop skills that will prepare them to make decisions about their post-secondary future. It is the capstone course for students that are completing a coherent sequence of courses within their specific career pathway and it is divided into three important components: classroom instruction, workplace instruction, and credentialing certifications.


Program Objectives:

  • To assist students in making career choices - This includes exploring today’s job market, setting personal goals, and developing an individual career portfolio.
  • To assist students in basic workplace practices - This includes safety, workplace ethics, communication skills, and professionalism training.
  • To assist students in professional development - This includes work relationship training, leadership skill development, problem-solving and thinking-skill development, technology applications, and time management skill development.
  • Students will work toward industry recognized certifications in their field of study (examples: OSHA, CVA Level I and Microsoft certifications)
