By Logan High School CTE Students
On April 30 and May 1, over 3,500 junior high school students, teachers, school administrators, CTE Directors, parents, industry leaders, and volunteers converged on the campus of Bridgerland Applied Technology College (BATC) for the annual BATC Career Days.
The objective of Career Days was to provide students in the Bear River Region with hands-on exposure to the diverse and exciting career opportunities requiring technical skills. According to the Department of Workforce Services, 76 percent of the jobs in Utah do not require a Bachelor’s degree. However, most of them do require technical skills.
The Careers Day event included interactive exhibits, trade industry displays, and demonstration projects all requiring student involvement. It is hoped that increased awareness with help students, parents, teachers, [school] counselors, and the community become more aware of the opportunities available for those who have the right skills.
