Midlands Technical College has made a comprehensive, college-wide, change in our approach. We are beginning with the end in mind. At MTC, we have made it a priority to help students see themselves in the career that best suits them, show them the path to get there, and support them on that path until graduation.
MTC’s new guided pathways approach is a fundamental change in college culture that enables our students to finish faster than ever before. Our graduates can then start working for the Midlands employers who so desperately need highly trained, meticulously educated employees. And, our students who plan to transfer after graduation from MTC are able to continue their career education plans much sooner. It’s a student-first approach, with the end goal always at the top-of-mind.
Guiding Students Into Career Pathways
MTC’s Schools of Study and program pathways guide students toward in-demand careers with solid earning potentials necessary to provide for their families and livelihoods.
For the month of August, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported almost 153,000 South Carolinians were unemployed. For that same month, the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce reported 120,395 open jobs. To connect unemployed people to jobs, the missing pieces often involve training and education. Learn how MTC’s new guided pathways approach is delivering students directly into the workforce pipeline.
