CTE Internships & Pre-Apprenticeships
The Career and Technical Education Department is proud to provide internship & pre-apprenticeship opportunities for KCS CTE students. Internships & pre-apprenticeships provide valuable experience and training for students. We have partnered with local companies and organizations in the county to allow KCS students to learn from knowledgeable and skilled professionals. Students have a unique opportunity to earn high school credit while working on the job to prepare them for post-secondary and career aspirations.
Current CTE Internship Opportunities
Current and existing internship opportunities are listed below. Students should submit an application of interest through Major Clarity to learn more about each opportunity.
