About

Workforce educators teach students of all ages the skills necessary to succeed in technical fields and other areas that require specific knowledge. Most students seeking a degree in workforce education and development have extensive career experience in their chosen fields. Students in the workforce education and development program at Valdosta State University can pursue one of two options in their quest to become professional educators: workforce training and development or secondary career-technical education.

The VSYou Difference

The Valdosta State workforce education and development program with a workforce training and development option is designed for students who are interested in teaching or training in postsecondary settings, including technical institutes and colleges, community colleges, private industries, community and social services agencies, and the military. Students develop and refine their instructional planning, delivery and evaluation skills and rely on their previous work experiences to help prepare them to serve as instructors in their chosen technical fields. 

The workforce education and development program with a secondary career-technical education option is designed for students who are currently teaching or who are planning to enter the secondary education classroom in the fields of workforce education and development or health care science technology education. Graduates of the program who complete the CTE option become certified to teach students in 7th-12th grade.
