Career Technical Education Partnership

Our Mission

The Santa Cruz County Career Technical Education Partnership (CTEP) provides students with the opportunity to acquire academic, career and technical skills and to prepare for life-long learning and success in the changing workplace.

What We Do

CTEP provides high quality Career and Technical Education for Santa Cruz County. CTEP is a Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accredited program. This year we will serve over 600 students in 25 classes in 15 different subjects at 12 different sites. As a department of the County Office of Education, CTEP provides tuition free programming to all interested high school students 15 years of age and older.

In addition to excellent Career and Technical Education programming, we offer a Work Based Learning program for our students, to include internships, job shadowing and industry-expert guest speakers.

CTEP is committed to providing unique opportunities for students to become college and career ready. Some of our coursework offers a-g credit for college. These courses will help students complete the minimum requirements to be admitted to a California State University or a University of California. CTEP also offers coursework that is articulated with Cabrillo College. Students in these courses can earn college credit while they are in high school. Some of our courses also offer an industry recognized certificate upon completion which will help in making a student instantly employable.

CTEP also offers fee based programs for adults. We offer very successful Dental Assisting and Medical Assisting programs. 60-70% of the students in these programs are employed at the time of graduation. Other adult programs include ServSafe, Smog Certification and we have provided scholarships for qualified students in our Cosmetology program.

CTEP is dedicated to providing a learning environment where students become college and career ready. We offer a Designated Subjects Credential program for our new teachers.
