A new resource developed by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) will assist states in designing and implementing career pathways systems. The tool, titled “Designing a Career Pathways System: A Framework for State Education Agencies,” can be accessed on AIR’s College and Career Readiness and Success Center website. It features four modules, including:
Each section includes presentation materials and activities that will assist education agencies at the state level in implementing career pathways. Career pathways have been a major topic of discussion at the federal level as greater emphasis has been placed on holistically approaching student preparation for college- and career-readiness. Such emphasis has grown since the passage of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, which formally defined career pathways and looked to local workforce institutions to create these opportunities in their communities while using labor market information to guide their decision-making.
Because of this emphasis on career pathways in federal policy, ACTE’s National Policy Seminar will include a comprehensive forum to examine CTE’s role in their expansion. There’s still time to register for the forum, which will be held on Wednesday, March 2, as well as for the full National Policy Seminar! Visit the ACTE website to learn more.
