Core Abilities

In keeping with our mission and vision, CVTC promotes the development of four key core abilities. These core abilities address the broad-based skills that will prepare a student to become a productive member of the workforce, a civic-minded citizen of the community, and a life-long learner ready to grow with their chosen profession.

A student who has mastered the core abilities is one who does the following:

  1. Develops self-awareness
  2. Practices personal accountability
  3. Demonstrates ethical behavior
  4. Applies quality standards
  5. Follows sustainable practices

  1. Applies problem solving strategy
  2. Acquires relevant information
  3. Uses technology and other resources appropriately
  4. Evaluates alternatives

Values Diversity
  1. Recognizes personal biases
  2. Demonstrates respectful and inclusive interactions
  3. Adapts to culturally diverse situations

These core abilities are woven throughout the student's avenue of study not becoming the sole responsibility of any one course but rather integrated into all curriculum as appropriate, thus building a strong base for academic and personal success.
