“Technical schools can open the door to in-demand jobs and high-paying careers,” said Corrado (R-40). “From engineering technologies to construction trades, vocational education fills a growing need for skilled workers in various industries. The designation of February as ‘Career and Technical Education Month’ will help us recognize the importance of New Jersey’s 21 county vo-tech schools and all they do to ready the next generation of tradespeople.”

Senator Corrado’s bipartisan joint resolution, AJR-180/SJR-112, would annually designate the month of February as “Career and Technical Education Month” in New Jersey.

“Trade schools can be a smart investment for recent high school graduates and those who want to acquire sought after workforce skills,” added Corrado. “It’s important to note that the cost of a technical education is far lower than a typical four year university degree. New Jersey’s technical and career colleges are leading the way to well-paying jobs in a long lasting occupation.”

The joint resolution requests that the Governor annually issue a proclamation calling upon students, parents, and citizens of the state to learn more about career and technical education, county vocational-technical school programs, and well-paying career pathways that can be launched with an industry credential or a technical degree.
