Work Place Credentials
Credentials - Being Work Ready
In the NC CTE 2015-2016 Credentialing Data Report released in September 2016, NC CTE students earned a record number of work place credentials: 140,097. Perquimans' CTE program is ranked 2nd in the state (Local Education Agencies & Charters) for the number of credentials earn proportional to the number of students, grade 9-12, enrolled in the CTE curriculum.
Students at PCHS can earn industry standard credentials in every pathway. In the 2015-2016 school year, with an emphasis on increasing rigor, the credential numbers increased from 160 to 407 in one year. Our students and teachers focused on being career ready by meeting the same standards as adult workers. For the 2016-2017 school year, we have added credentials in the following areas: Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Adobe Premier and Quickbooks.
