Career Preparation I (Period 1)
This course is a work-based instructional arrangement in which students will develop essential knowledge and skills through classroom instruction and on –the- job training in an approved technical-specific area. Students will receive general employability skills as a group; however, each student will have an individual training plan that will address his/her job specific knowledge and skills. The training station must be approved by the instructor. Students will be given job specific training assignments in the classroom or participate in job shadowing or an internship. This course must be a part of the student’s coherent sequence of CTE courses. The recommended prerequisite is two semesters of technical training prior to or during this course of study from any CTE pathway. Students must provide their own transportation and a copy of their social security card upon employment. An application and an interview are required before enrollment in the course. Genesys Works is a paid internship with a Fortune 500 company available to seniors who meet specific criteria.
