Bettering Our Communities

By working with our business partners, we strive to meet industry employment demands by helping build a more educated and well-trained workforce. Our schools provide a wide variety of programs and classes that help students at all levels, from strengthening existing skills to entering an entirely new career. Experienced counselors and dedicated teachers support students every step of the way to reach their education and career goals.
  • HIRE

Our diverse program offerings allow students to construct their own future with an individualized plan that puts them in the driver’s seat. With six schools and more than thirty program offerings to choose from, our experienced counselors help students to craft a unique course of action full of limitless possibilities.

Our partners know the power of real-world learning. To further bridge the gap between classroom learning and real-world application, our schools partner with local businesses to offer students internship opportunities in a wide range of different industry sectors throughout our region. Throughout their course of study, students have the opportunity to engage in on-site training to better prepare them for a career in their area of interest.

We are dedicated to educating the workforce that businesses need to meet the growing demands of tomorrow. By offering students the opportunity to participate in a multitude of career-preparatory events and activities, including ETCN Career Fairs, mock interviews, resume reviews, and an exclusive North County Job Board that is available only to our students, ETCN is dedicated to strengthening our region by supplying a strong, well-trained and prepared workforce.
