What is a Career Pathway?

A New Definition, May 1999
  • A Career Pathway is a PreK-12 structure for
    organizing instructional content designed around
    broad career areas. Progression in a career
    pathway is both vertical and horizontal and
    provides the basis for lifelong learning. A
    Pathway prepares a student for further education
    and/or employment.

Components for Career Pathway Framework
  • Integration of Career Education Standards and
    Benchmarks (Employability Standards and National
    Career Development Guidelines) into the PreK-12
    curriculum for all students.
  • Integration of academic and technical instruction
    and school-based and work-based experiences.

8
Components for Career Pathway Framework
  • Articulation among elementary, middle, secondary
    schools, and post-secondary institutions.
  • Preparation of the student for future employment
    in a broad occupational cluster and/or industry
    sector and/or continued education.

9
Components for Career Pathway Framework
  • Inclusion of career education opportunities for
    all students, in depth exploration of careers of
    interest to the student, and the understanding of
    the relevance of academic content in the
    workplace.
  • Inclusion of specific occupational preparation
    which may link two years of secondary education
    with a two year or four year educational
    institution or an apprenticeship program.
