Career Technical Pathways

A culinary student and instructor

What is a Career Pathway?

A career pathway is an educational road map outlining courses that prepare a student for college and career transition.

 

What does a Career Pathway lead to?

A career pathway leads to multiple options for students such as early credit in high school, industry certification requirements, certificates, associate degrees, employment and in some cases preparation for transfer to a university.

 

How do you start a Career Pathway?

  1. Explore your career interests and pathway options.
  2. Choose a career pathway you are interested in pursuing.
  3. Work closely with a high school or college counselor to develop an educational plan.

Career Technical Education, or contextual learning, is not only for the average college age student, you can start as early as high school or develop a second career later in life. Even if you have never attended college before you can earn a degree that leads to a new career.

Career technical education (CTE) pathways deliver relevant and rigorous academic and technical learning experiences. CTE also prepares you to transition smoothly and successfully into post-secondary education and/or the workforce while allowing flexibility so you can explore multiple career options.
