North Kern Vocational Training Center (NKVTC) has been
providing Career Technical Education (CTE) to students for over 30 years.
The Center was formed after the Regional
Occupational Center of Kern was disbanding, leaving a need for Career-Technical
training in the Northern Kern County.
NKVTC is operated by a Joint Powers Agreement and is governed by a Board
The Center serves the
students from our three Partnering Districts:
Delano Joint Union High School District www.djuhsd.org
, McFarland Unified School
, and Wasco Union High School District www.wascouhsd.org
North Kern offers students quality experiences which provide
students with meaningful, industry recognized skills with a verified labor
market demand. Each program strives to meet the quality indicators for a Career
Technical Program. Each program has an
advisory committee comprised of representatives from the industry sectors which
guide the program. NKVTC teachers are
fully credentialed by the California State Department of Education www.cde.ca.gov Each
one of our teachers has experience within the industry which he or she is
teaching, and a passion for their curriculum and their students. Our classes
are offered on three sites, Wasco High School, Delano High School, and
McFarland Learning Center, and students are transported daily from their home
schools to our programs.
Many of our programs include an “On the Job” Training
opportunity as well, which works in cooperation with our local community to
place students in current positions through the community classroom
Some of our programs offer
students the opportunity to test for an industry recognized certifications such
as a Certified Nursing Assistant, or recognized Guard Card.
We prepare students for their future success with practical,
hirable skills. Not only technical, industry related skills, but the Standards
for Career Ready practice which future employers will want our students to know
and be able to do. Students are
recognized on a monthly basis for employability skills such as Responsibility,
Communication, and Integrity.
We are proud to be offering students opportunities to engage
in career-technical education - putting their academic education into practice
with live, meaningful projects, whether it is building a house, greeting
customers on a retail job site, or taking vital signs, NKVTC is preparing our
students for college and career readiness.
