Tallo provides CTECS the opportunity to offer a systematic and sustainable talent pipeline where students can show case their ongoing technical and work ready skills from middle school through high school and adult education.
Teachers should encourage their CTE students to create a free account on Tallo and begin creating their “professional” profiles in this one-of-a-kind, closed and protected platform. Students can use their profile to showcase skills and achievements through CTECS Middle School and CTECS WRS Digital Badge.

The CTECS Middle School Career Interest Development Course
For middle school and ninth grade students, CTECS has a brand new online course, Middle School Career Interest Development, which focuses on social and emotional learning (SEL) and career exploration. It is a practical way to prepare for the WRS/CCRA high school program.
The WRS/CCRA Credential
The CTECS Workplace Readiness Skills (WRS) credential package which culminates in a WRS Badge, ensures students are aware of and prepared for the real-world challenges of their professions. There is a WRS version adopted for California, the California Career Ready Assessment (CCRA).
The WRS/CCRA is the best test available to measure a student’s awareness of essential workplace expectations.
