Work Based Learning Classes in all PathwaysCTE Advanced Studies Honors: This culminating course is for juniors and seniors who have completed a CTE Pathway, including the concentrator course. Students select and develop the topic of study and work under the guidance of a teacher with expertise in the pathway.

The four components of the course are a research paper, a product or artifact, a portfolio, and a presentation. Prerequisite: Two or three technical credits in one career pathway, including the concentrator course.
CTE Apprenticeship Honors: Students who participate in registered pre-apprenticeships or youth apprenticeships through Apprenticeship NC can earn CTE high school course credit.

Students must meet employment requirements when pre-apprenticeships are offered through community partners. Prerequisite: Two or three technical credits in one career pathway, including the concentrator course.CTE Internship Honors: A CTE Internship allows for additional development of career and technical competencies within a general career field. Internships allow students to observe and participate in daily operations, develop direct contact with job personnel, ask questions about careers, and perform certain job tasks. This activity is exploratory and allows the student to get hands-on experience in several related activities. The teacher, student, and the business community jointly plan the organization, implementation, and evaluation of an internship, regardless of whether it is an unpaid or paid.
