Career Technical Pathways
Career technical education (CTE) pathways deliver relevant and rigorous academic and technical learning experiences. CTE also prepares you to transition smoothly and successfully into post-secondary education and/or the workforce while allowing flexibility so you can explore multiple career options.
Workforce & Economic Development
The San Diego Community College District is the largest workforce trainer in San Diego County. The district is responsible for fueling $5.5 billion of spending annually in the regional economy, enough to support more than 74,000 jobs, according to a new independent analysis. The additional $5.5 billion created by the SDCCD is equal to approximately 2.8 percent of the county's Gross Regional Product.
