Exploring Career Pathways
The term "pathways" is currently being used in the context of several educational frameworks. This webinar will focus on the resources of the National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Consortium's 16 Career Clusters and 79 Pathways to help guide teachers and administrators in making decisions that build and strengthen career awareness and career exploration.

Strategies and practices will focus on the following goals:


Update current CTE programs
Develop new and emerging CTE programs
Enhance rigor and relevance in classroom instruction
Support CTE and academic teachers in career academies
Provide career guidance to students throughout their educational experience
