Educating and Growing WV's Workforce
The West Virginia Community & Technical College System (CTCS) coordinates community and technical colleges statewide, partnering with businesses to meet workforce needs and ensuring a meaningful education for our students. Community and technical colleges are an opportunity for West Virginians to get a college education for a reasonable price with on-the-job training in a variety of fields. Students can attend community colleges as an affordable way to work toward a bachelor’s degree or to graduate and head right into a good-paying job. And when employers partner with us to meet their workforce needs, students can be assured that those jobs are there when they graduate.
We believe in real-life education.
A community and technical college education in the Mountain State is the kind of education that matters for today’s state economy. Students of our colleges graduate with the knowledge and hands-on experience that translate to real-life careers, allowing them to stay, work and raise their families right here at home.
