2
Clusters and Pathways
  • Defining
  • Career and Technical Education

3
Vocational Education vs. Career and Technical
Education
4
Two Major Projects Facilitated by OVAE
  • Career Clusters Defines What
  • College and Career Transitions Initiative
    (Pathways) Suggests How

5
Career Clusters
  • An organizing tool defining CTE using 16 broad
    clusters of occupations and 81 pathways with
    validated standards that ensure opportunities for
    all students regardless of their career goals and
    interests.

6
Career Pathway
  • A career pathway is a coherent, articulated
    sequence of rigorous academic and career related
    courses, commencing in ninth grade and leading to
    an associate degree, and/or an industry-recognized
    certificate or licensure, and/or a baccalaureate
    and beyond.

7
Programs of Study (Pathways) As Defined in Perkins
8
Perkins Programs of Study
  • State approved programs, which may be adopted by
    local education agencies and postsecondary
    institutions to be offered as an option to
    students when planning for and completing future
    coursework, for career and technical content
    areas.

9
Perkins Programs of Study
  • 1. Incorporate secondary education and
    postsecondary education elements

10
Perkins Programs of Study
  • 2. Include coherent and rigorous content aligned
    with challenging academic standards and relevant
    career and technical content in a coordinated,
    non-duplicative progression of courses that align
    secondary education with postsecondary education
    to adequately prepare students to succeed in
    postsecondary education

11
Perkins Programs of Study
 
  • 3. May include the opportunity for secondary
    education students to participate in dual or
    concurrent enrollment programs or other ways to
    acquire postsecondary education credits and

12
Perkins Programs of Study
  • 4. Lead to an industry-recognized credential or
    certificate at the postsecondary level, or an
    associate or baccalaureate degree.

13
Implementation of pathways organized around the
16 clusters provides
  • Consistency for better data (results) and shared
    opportunities for development
  • Articulation within and between states
  • Employer and postsecondary validated standards
  • Opportunities for all students
  • A place for all career goals and interests

14
Essential Questions
  • How can the Clusters Pathways help create the
    new CTE?
  • What does the work on Plans of Study mean for us
    in our states and schools?

15
During the webcast, we hope to
  • Raise awareness about the clusters and pathways,
  • Create an understanding of terminology,
  • Provide an understanding of the knowledge and
    skills,
  • Identify components of the POS, and
  • Identify strategies for cluster and pathway
    selection.

So where do Career Clusters fit in? What are they?
  • Career Clusters are groupings of occupations and
    industries
  • These groupings are used as an organizing tool
    for
  • Curriculum Design
  • Instructional Guidance Model
  • Seamless Transition

22
What about Career Pathways?
  • A Career Pathway represents a grouping of
    occupations within a cluster based on
    commonalities

23
What are the Plans of Study?
  • A sequenced listing of courses, both academic and
    CTE/degree major, that connects students high
    school and postsecondary educational experiences
  • A set of course descriptions for the CTE/degree
    major courses based on knowledge and skill
    statements
