A Michigan school that officials say is the second largest school of its type in the country is sending its most recent class of graduates into the job world. The Michigan Career Technical Institute trains students with disabilities for work in vocational careers. And 80-percent of their students find work.
Dozens of new workers are settling into their jobs this month.
Michigan Career Technical Institute recently graduated a class of over 150 students.
Erica Quealy is the spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Human Services. She said MTCI does a good job helping people who have barriers to employment.
“This is a great opportunity for any person in Michigan who is over 18 years old, and maybe experiencing some sort of disabilities and need some help finding the appropriate training to help them reach their career success goals.”
Quealy said approximately 320 students graduate each year in 13 vocational programs, including automotive technology, graphic arts, and nursing assistant.
