• CTE and LINKED LEARNING in LAUSD

  • Linked Learning transforms students’ high school experience by bringing together strong academics, demanding career technical education (CTE), and real-world experience to help students gain an advantage in high school, post secondary education, and careers. 


    Students follow career-themed Pathways, choosing among fields such as engineering, arts and media, or health and medicine. Participation in Linked Learning prepares students to graduate from high school and succeed in a full range of post secondary options, including two- or four-year colleges, certification programs, apprenticeships, military service, or formal job training.
     
     
     
    By turning high school education into a personally relevant and engaging experience, Linked Learning exposes students to previously unimagined college and career opportunities. Research shows that Linked Learning students have higher rates of engagement and higher graduation rates than their peers at traditional high schools. This approach to education is helping to create an engaged, disciplined, and productive future workforce ready to succeed in college, career, and life.
