CTAE – Career, Technical and Agricultural Education
Your “Pathway” To Your Future!
by
Phyllis Bowman-Cash, Business Teacher
Douglas County High School

Attention, students: No matter what you decide to do in life, CTAE (Career, Technical and Agricultural Education) business classes will always prepare you for whatever career you choose - whether working in managerial positions, promoting products or services through advertising and marketing, communicating successfully in the office with fellow employees, or owning your own business! Your “pathway” to success, no matter your choices in life, will depend on your expertise of business skills!

Let’s take a look on your iPad into that crystal ball of your future….

The Administrative Information Support pathway explores social, ethical, and human issues related to technology. You’ll learn decision-making and problem-solving skills, computer technology, productivity, and communication. All valuable skills no matter what you do in life!

The Financial Management pathways show you how to manage your money from your great career choice and plan not only for retirement, but for rainy day needs as well. Also, you’ll learn the skills on how to invest your money so that it multiplies plus how to invest in the stock market.

The Small Business Development pathway plays a key role in Georgia’s economy. Georgia has many careers available for business professionals as managers, business owners, accountants, economists, or analysts. You’ll learn marketing, management, how to start and run your own business, and understand how law affects these day-to-day operations of business.

At the College and Career Institute, learn broadcast/video production, graphic arts, and health services skills. Not going in to those careers? These classes are still valuable to you! Want to make interesting photos of your family, friends, and future children? Broadcast/video will teach you! Want to learn how to design business cards and promotional flyers for your future business or church, club, or organization? Graphic arts will show you! Want to take the best care of your loved ones as well as yourself with a solid knowledge of preventative health care, health care terms, and chronic illnesses? Healthcare services will inform you!

Yes! That crystal ball on your iPad definitely shows you how CTAE business classes ARE your pathway to a successful, rewarding, financially secure future!
