New Dual Enrollment Course Will Teach Financial Literacy
RTCC’s Business Management Program will offer personal finance course to RTCC and RU students beginning Spring 2018 for college credit.
Vermont Technical College has approved a dual enrollment personal finance course that will be offered at Randolph Technical Career Center beginning in the spring of 2018.
Business Management program instructor Wayne Goulet will use resources from Next Gen Personal Finance (NGFP) for his instruction. The goal of the course is to give students the tools they need to take charge of their personal finances and remove some of the mystery from the personal financial planning process.
“Understanding personal financial planning provides major benefits that can help marshal and control financial resources more effectively, facilitating an improved standard of living,” noted Goulet. “I'm very excited to offer a much needed Personal Finance course to not only my students at Randolph Technical Career Center (RTCC) but also to the students at adjoining Randolph Union High School through Vermont Tech.”
The course will cover financial statements and budgets; managing basic assets; credit; insurance needs; investments; and planning for retirement.
Upon learning of the new dual enrollment agreement, Tim Ranzetta, founder of NGPF, said: “We are ecstatic to hear that our resources will support Mr. Goulet’s course while providing Vermont students with college credit. It’s great to see more young people having access to high-quality financial education and practical knowledge so they can thrive. That’s our mission and it’s why we are thrilled to have another educator connect with our free resources.”

Digital Film Students Produce Film on Climate Change
One of the first executive orders signed by Republican Governor Phil Scott when he took office in 2017 was to establish the Vermont Climate Action Commission. Today, this diverse commission is capturing feedback and recommendations from all sectors to create an action plan designed to achieve Vermont’s emission reduction targets of 40% by 2030 and 80-95% by 2050 (vs. 1990 levels).
Students in the Digital Film program interviewed Governor Phil Scott; Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger, and Montpelier Mayor John Hollar to learn more about this exciting initiative.

Our Business Administration Program has been busy this fall...and so has its instructor!
Wayne Goulet, who teaches the program, joined twenty-two other Vermont high school and tech center teachers, some with little entrepreneurship experience, to Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee, VT over Oct. 17 and 18, to study Entrepreneurship. They left with lesson plans, information on student workshops, and ideas for pitching a business idea to their students.
You can read all about the workshop by clicking on the Article in the "Documents Box" to the left.
The Business Management Program provides students with the opportunity to study management, marketing, accounting, and computer applications, while exploring future options through visits to both colleges and businesses. Students participate in numerous practical and real world activities inside and outside of the classroom, as well as operate their own for-profit, in-class business.
