Annual CTAE Events


The WBL Success Seminar is held in the first semester of the school year and hosted by Clayton State University. Each year approximately 200 students and 50 school representatives attended. The Success Seminar is comprised of two sessions. Each session has 5 workshops directed by industry professionals. The workshops focus on teaching soft skills or "essential skills" needed to be successful in the workforce. Students select one workshop from each session. Instructors develop their workshops to be interactive and hands on. Subject content included the importance of first impressions, communications, dress for success, technology and behavior in the workplace and more.


The CTAE Achievement Ceremony recognizes student achievement in Accuplacer (Move On When Ready) and End of Pathway Assessments (EOPA). The Accuplacer (Move On When Ready) exam is part of Dual Enrollment and is taken to determine the student’s level of readiness to take college level courses and attain college credit while in high school. The EOPA is given to students that pass three sequential classes within a specific career pathway. Students that successfully complete the EOPA earn an industry recognized credential, signifying the student’s achievement and preparedness for career, college and the workforce.


Every year, CTAE teachers dedicate their time, energy and passion to students taking CTAE courses. This involves not only teaching in class, but promoting the program, seeking and working with partners, employers, arranging field trips and much more. Teach-a-Palooza is a fun filled afternoon set aside to thank the CTAE instructors and to show our appreciation for work they do. The afternoon is supported by contributions from our CTAE Business/Industry and Community Leaders Advisory Board members and other program partners. The afternoon is held outdoors and includes food, music, games and more.
