College Connections

MVCTC Work-Based Learning Opportunities  

LEARN AND EARN WITH MVCTC

  • According to ApprenticeOhio – "Learn the skills you need for a rewarding career while you earn a paycheck – all without racking up student loan debt!"
  • What if you could earn the same amount per year as a college graduate without the student loan debt?

Learn more at http://apprentice.ohio.gov.

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 - MVCTC has an Ohio State Apprenticeship Council Recognized Pre-Apprenticeship Program. Students learn the skills needed for a rewarding career while earning a paycheck. 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. The schedule alternates throughout the school year. Students who complete the program will earn a 12-point credential towards their graduation requirements.

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 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 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.
