Career Pathways

The career pathway approach connects progressive levels of education, training, credentials, and support services for specific occupations in a way that optimizes the progress and success of individuals with varying levels of abilities and needs. This approach helps individuals with different levels of skills and experiences earn marketable credentials, engage in further education and employment, and achieve economic success. Specifically, WIOA legislation defines career pathways broadly to include the organization of rigorous and high-quality education, training, and other services to align with state or local needs and help individuals with different needs accelerate their educational and career advancement.  The career pathway approach also incorporates sector strategy principles by deeply engaging employers to increase the relevancy and labor market value of participants’ skills and credentials, which in turn improves participants’ employment prospects.
