NJ P-TECH provides access and opportunity for underrepresented students in New Jersey’s comprehensive high schools to an education in an in-demand STEM career pathway by participating in an industry-driven career pathway program where they can earn a high school diploma and a postsecondary degree, while they gain valuable employability skills.
In 2018, Governor Murphy awarded $900,000 to three school districts to develop and implement
P-TECH programs. The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) is proud to support the P-TECH grantees as they improve educational outcomes for all students.
P-TECH 9-14 School Model is a pioneering education reform initiative created by IBM, to prepare young people with the academic, technical and professional skills required for 21st century jobs and ongoing education.
