So what is ROP & CTE?- ROP Introduction

Coastline ROP is a dynamic educational organization that inspires students to achieve their goals – both in academics and careers. We specialize in career technical education that transforms student aspirations into reality and builds a pipeline of workforce talent for regional businesses. Our programs focus on career technical skills, industry-specific skills, and the necessary personal and professional skills to prepare our students for future academic success and/or a great career. Our business partners benefit by tapping into the talents of our students through internships and other innovative work-based learning opportunities that build industry interest and the next generation of workers. As a career technical education provider, Coastline ROP partners with five school districts in Orange County, CA, to strengthen and broaden the students’ education experience.

Careers that are the focus of ROP require varying levels of education including industry-recognized credentials, postsecondary certificates, and two-and four-year degrees. CTE is offered in middle schools, high schools, career and technical centers, community and technical colleges, and other postsecondary institutions. According to the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE), almost all high school students take at least one CTE course, and one in four students take three or more courses in a single program area. One-third of college students are involved in CTE programs, and as many as 40 million adults engage in short-term postsecondary career training.

CTE is at the forefront of preparing students to be “college-and career-ready.” CTE equips students with:

  • core academic skills and the ability to apply those skills to concrete situations in order to function in the workplace and in routine daily activities;

  • employability skills (such as critical thinking and decision-making skills) that are essential in any career area;

  • job-specific, technical skills related to specific career pathways.
