MVCTC has advisory committees in place for each career-technical program; these advisory committees are made up of over 400 business partners across the Miami Valley.

 

College Connections

College Opportunities: MVCTC prepares students for college by providing opportunities to earn college credit and scholarship money. MVCTC offers several opportunities for students meeting the established criteria for early college options.

College Credit Plus: MVCTC students who qualify can earn college and high school credit from MVCTC College Credit Plus partners in several academic courses. These offerings may include business, calculus, communications, English, pre-calculus, social studies, and statistics.

Tech Prep Programs – Tech Prep students completing the high school requirements can graduate from high school with college credits posted on a Sinclair Community College transcript and earn Sinclair’s Tech Prep Scholarship, enabling them to pursue and complete a wide variety of certificates and degree programs in preparation for industry-specific jobs and/or additional post-secondary education at four-year colleges and universities. (Some programs offer Tech Prep options with Clark State Community College.)

CTAG / Career-Technical Transfer Credit (CT)2 – Students who complete specified technical programs are eligible to have technical credit transfer to public colleges and universities. This transfer of credit is described in Career-Technical Assurance Guides (CTAG). CTAGs are advising tools that assist students moving from Ohio secondary and adult career-technical institutions to Ohio public institutions of higher education.

MVCTC Work-Based Learning Opportunities  

 

Option 1 Internship - An internship is a temporary position with an emphasis on on-the-job training rather than merely employment, and it can be paid or unpaid. Companies usually have a specific project that is a good fit for interns.

Option 2 Pre-Apprenticeship - The Pre-Apprenticeship program teaches necessary technical and job-readiness skills for a designated apprentice occupation or sector to prepare students for a formal Registered Apprenticeship training program. The MVCTC program allows students the opportunity to receive on-the-job training and apply it to a state-registered apprenticeship program after graduation.

MVCTC has an  Ohio State Apprenticeship Council Recognized Pre-Apprenticeship Program.  Students learn the skills needed for a rewarding career while earning a paycheck – all without racking up student loan debt. The students who meet the qualifications can start work the summer before their senior year, and when school starts, they can work two weeks full time and return to school two weeks full time to complete their academic requirements for graduation.  They alternate this schedule for the entire senior year.

Option 3: Advanced Placement - Students in all career technical programs that participate will be able to seek employment second semester of their senior year. The students’ GPA and attendance will determine their Advanced Placement start date. These students will work a half-day with a qualified employer, and the work counts towards their career technical program grade.

 

Certifications

Students attending MVCTC may have the opportunity to earn industry-standard certifications in their career program.

The Ohio Department of Education states, “The process of earning an industry-recognized credential (and career-technical education in general) allows students to experience education through work, about work, and for work. Students learn more deeply by practicing and applying their knowledge through work and employment experiences – learning through work. They learn about workplace expectations in terms of professional or “soft” skills needed for employment, as well as learning about career pathways and what the labor market for particular occupations looks like – learning about work. And, they learn the job-specific skills they will need to perform day-to-day tasks – learning for work.”

What is an in industry credential? An industry-recognized credential is a verification of an individual’s qualification or competence. A third party with authority (U.S. Department of Labor, 2010) issues a credential. Authorities include business, trade association, or other industry-group assessments that measure technical competency and validate knowledge and skills in a specific industry. This also includes licenses or legal permission to engage in particular types of work that typically a government agency issues.
